How to subscribe?

YouTube has what is called a "channel," which is a list of videos distributed by video distributors (accounts that publish videos). Registering this channel while logged in to your Google account is called "channel registration. Currently, there are no paid channels, and any channel can be registered for free.

For example, if you like a certain video and want to watch other videos by the person who posted it, you can easily watch other videos by registering as a channel. It saves you the trouble of looking for videos when you want to watch them again, and you will be notified when the distributor posts new videos, and you can also see how many videos you have not watched. By subscribing to this channel, you can customize YouTube to your liking.

Differences from Playlists

YouTube also offers a "playlist" feature for managing your favorite videos. While a subscription is a list of videos from a single distributor, a playlist is a feature that allows you to create a list of videos from various distributors to your liking. For example, if you want to create a list of music videos, you can create lists such as "rock," "pop," "jazz," etc., and put your favorite artists' videos in each list.

Also, channel subscriptions are automatically added when a broadcaster delivers new videos, but there is no function to automatically add playlists. Playlists are useful for picking up favorite songs from various artists and collecting videos you want to watch or save for later.

Follow the steps below to create a playlist.

  • Select "Save" below the video
  • Select "Create a new playlist"
  • Enter a playlist name
  • Select "Create."
