  • An experimental feature that highlights valuable videos.

Here’s more information about each of these updates.

The first of these metrics is the addition of new and returning viewer metrics under the Audience tab of Channel and Video Analytics.

Bottom Navigation Bar For Studio Mobile

YouTube is updating its Studio Mobile app with the launch of bottom navigation bar.

YouTube first revealed this in a sneak peak last year. Since then there have been improvements designed to optimize the experience of studio mobile for creators.

Over the next few weeks YouTube will be rolling out bottom navigation in Studio Mobile. A similar style of navigation can be seen in the YouTube main app.

The goal of this, versus the current sidebar navigation, is to increase efficiency by reducing the number of navigational clicks that users have to make in the app.

Experimental Feature: Top Videos Growing Your Audience

YouTube is experimenting with a new data card in Studio Mobile called top videos growing your audience.

Found under the audience tab within analytics, this card is going to show you which videos are helping to grow your audience.

The card will display a list of videos that’s ordered based on the number of new viewers that returned to watch more content.
