YouTube Updates Channel Subscription Preferences

It seems that YouTube has made a small change to YouTube channel Subscription preferences.

If you don’t know where to see this, when you subscribe to a channel a little cog icon appears like this that when clicked used to pop up a box that would allow you to choose two things.

1 – Have YouTube email you every time the channel uploads a video.

2 – Allow YouTube to only show uploads in the activity feed.

Here’s what it looked like before.

The Email with new uploads option was great, it meant I would never miss an upload from my favourite channels but now this is what it looks like.

Now here’s what it looks like now.

‘Send me updates’ keeps it vague. Am I going to stop receiving emails? Where are these updates going to appear?

One of my favourite features on YouTube is that I can ensure that I never miss an upload from a YouTube channel where I checked the box that I wanted email updates. There are not a lot of social networks that give you that opportunity.

This could very much impact a YouTubers total channel views from subscribers.

At the moment YouTube hasn’t announced the change.
