+YouTube Creators has just released a new mobile app. The Google-owned video sharing site announced on Friday its plans to roll out a separate mobile app for its content creators, which will allow them to better manage their channels from their phones and even crowdfund their videos. YouTube said the move was in response to their global satisfaction survey, which aims to garner feedback from its most involved users.
The app will also have a new crowdfunding feature, which will allow fans to pay their favorite YouTube creators directly. The idea is to give channel users another source for making money rather than solely depending on advertising revenue.
long with these new features, YouTube is also working on a community captions project, which will allow for crowdsourced captions and subtitles that translate into more than 60 languages. Additionally, some small updates will include a new comment management system, a way for musicians to share in revenue from their cover song videos, and expansion of its Creator Academy.
