Youtube viewers may soon have a new way to support their favorite creators with a new tool called Super Thanks…!
The new feature allows viewers to extend their support by giving ‘tips’ to creators. Users can choose from four price points given by Youtube. When a user rewards a creator, they’ll see an on-screen animated celebration and a colorful comment with their name appear below the video in the comments section.
Youtube was working on this feature for a year. it’s now available in beta across 68 countries. Previously, Youtube added 3 options for direct payments to creators. Channel subscriptions, super stickers, and super chat. Super stickers and super chat let viewers leave tips in chat during live streams.
Creators should be a part of the YouTube Partner Program for availing Super Thanks.
