Changing the Channels by March 7

As we shared in December, we want you to have more options for how you organize and showcase your content on your YouTube Channel so you can continue to grow your audience. To that end, we launched a new design for Channels, which allows you to select one of four templates to better fit your needs as a creator, as well as customizations to keep your viewers engaged and coming back.  
In order to provide your viewers with a consistent experience across YouTube, we’d like you to migrate your current Channel to the new design by March 7.  We will automatically convert all Channels on the site to the new design on March 7, so update yours before then to make sure it is set up to your liking.

If you haven’t already, you can opt in by clicking the blue “Try the new design” button on the top of your Channel page. You may also switch back to the old Channels design repeatedly before March 7 by clicking the “Switch Back” button in the appearance tab of the Edit Channel menu on your new Channel.

To help you get your Channel fully ready, we have resources within the Help Center.

Your feedback on the new design has been tremendously helpful as we continue to make refinements to improve both your and your viewers’ experiences.  

We hope that you have a successful transition to this new design.
