Play your videos

 You can play your videos from the YouTube Studio app. Tap Menu  > Videos , then select the video you want to watch. If the video doesn't play automatically, press the play button.

Access analytics

Take a look at your channel's analytics, such as time watched, video views, subscribers, revenue, and traffic sources. Tap into a card to view data for different date ranges, such as "Last 28 days" or "Lifetime." You can also see real-time data for several cards. When available, data is accurate up to midnight yesterday (PST). If not, you’ll see a note on each card telling you the data has a delay. Learn more about viewing analytics.

Note: YouTube real-time data aims to provide early estimates of potential activity on your videos. We take great care to ensure the highest quality data. However, the actual numbers you see on the watch page or in YouTube Analytics might be higher or lower than these estimates.

Get notifications
Be notified when you see notable subscriber growth or receive comments. You can also choose to customize your notification preferences to get only the notifications that you want. Learn more about managing notifications.
