2018’s Find X smartphone from OPPO was one of the most innovative designs of the year, thanks in no small part to it having a slide-up selfie camera instead of sporting a notch nor a punch-hole design. While its successors sport a more mainstream design with punch-hole AMOLED displays with 120Hz refresh rates, they also […]

We weren’t that into Lenovo’s Moto Mods in 2016. The new batch, however, launching alongside the Moto Z2 Play are both useful and attractive. It’s a good mix, especially since partners haven’t rallied around the modular platform as Lenovo had hoped. But the past is the past. These Moto Mods are here and they’re the […]

We’re always trying to help creators share their stories, deepen relationships with their fans and succeed. In order to help out with the business part of the equation, over the last few years we’ve developed and released several tools to help creators monetize their videos and live streams in a variety of ways.
Today, we are introducing our latest tool for fans and creators to connect with one another during live streams: Super Chat. Anybody watching a live stream can purchase a Super Chat: a highlighted message in the chat stream that stands out from the crowd to get even more of your favorite creator’s attention. And Super Chats remain pinned to the top of chat for up to 5 hours, giving more airtime for your messages.
For creators, this means Super Chat does double duty: keeping their conversations and connections with (super) fans meaningful and lively while also giving creators a new way to make money. We’re excited to start the Super Chat beta today with a few creators, such as iHasCupquake, Great Library (buzzbean11) and Alex Wassabi. And we plan to broadly launch Super Chat on January 31 for creators in 20 countries and viewers in more than 40 countries.
As we welcome a new tool for fans and creators, we bid farewell to an old one: Fan Funding. We launched Fan Funding in 2014 to let viewers make voluntary payments to support creators directly. While we were really excited about Fan Funding, it never achieved widespread usage outside of live streams, where we saw the majority of revenue. Fan Funding will stop accepting new sign-ups today, but can continue to be used on enabled channels until February 28, when it will be discontinued.
We are super (get it 😉 excited to see how our new creator funding tool keeps the conversation going.

Hello again, indeed! If it feels like we were just doing this, it's because… we were. Apple held an event last month to unveil the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2. There was much fanfare and we had quite a bit to say about it all. Now, just a few…

If you watched a YouTube video recently, chances are you did it on your phone or tablet. That’s because today, more than half the views on YouTube happen using mobile devices. So to bring you an even better mobile experience, we’re updating the official YouTube apps – making it easier than ever to find videos you love and create them, too.
The update – available now on Android, mobile web, and soon on iOS – introduces three new tabs:
You can also now watch full-screen vertical videos with just a single tap for the very first time.
But YouTube isn’t just about enjoying videos; it’s a place to express yourself and show the world what you love. With the redesigned app you can take your creativity to new levels using a new set of video creation tools. You’ve got an amazing camera in your phone or tablet, and now you can trim your footage, tint the image with filters, add music, and upload – all inside the app.
These are just a few of the features we’ve been working on, and you’ll see many more later this year.
