Sometimes, going to YouTube to find your favorite channels’ new uploads isn’t enough. Either you’ve missed the new episode because you’ve been away for awhile, or there’s some other issue on YouTube’s end where you didn’t get the notification in your subscriber box. Well, there is another way to get a tap on the shoulder when it comes to new uploads. In the subscriber box, there’s a drop-down menu that you may have overlooked because you’re probably attracted to all the pretty thumbnails and intriguing titles. This is how subscribers can get e-mail notifications for new uploads.
Your subscribers have total control over this, so they can quit any time and are under no obligation to keep it. This can be really helpful if there are channels of which you absolutely do not want to miss one upload.
If your subscribers want to do this, this is what they need to do:
- Go to the home page
- Go to “My Subscriptions.” The current uploads for all the subscribed channels will show up.
- Go to an upload of the channel in question. There is an arrow in the right-hand corner of the box it’s in:
A drop-down box unfurls, which gives them the option to “get an e-mail for each upload from [greatest YouTube channel ever].” A check mark will appear and e-mail notifications will start happening. And if they ever want this madness to stop, they can go right back and un-check it.
Simple as that!
