How to use YouTube’s new improvements
Viewers will be able to see a “view improvements” information card at the top corner of the video. You can simply click on the tag to see all the improvements made by the manufacturer. This card will only appear on the relevant timestamp, however, YouTube has clarified that it will only appear for the first correction in the video.

This will avoid the situation where the creator will have to delete the video and re-upload it and lose all existing views, likes and count. Notably, eligible creators will get this feature by the end of June.
Note that this will not be available to you if your channel has been subjected to an active strike or is reported by users as inappropriate. This feature will allow creators to inform users about their mistakes and make corrections once the video is uploaded so that they can provide the correct information.
To edit the settings of a video you’ve already uploaded to YouTube, you can follow these simple steps:
- Open YouTube Studio and sign in
- Click on “Content” that appears in the left menu
- Click on the title or thumbnail of the video
- Update/change the settings as needed and click “Save”
And that’s it! Overall, it aims to let creators improve their videos or clips on YouTube while maintaining engagement in the video. Earlier, creators had the option to correct errors in the description or comments of the video.
