YouTube pages are getting a TikTok-like For You feed

YouTube is debuting a new For You part for creators’ channels, customized to whoever opens the web page. It will begin exhibiting up on November twentieth, in keeping with a post from YouTube’s support account, which says the part will advocate “a mixture of content material out of your channel to viewers based mostly on their watch historical past.”

Creators can flip the function on or off within the customization menu beneath channel settings. Alternatively, clicking “extra settings” beneath the “suggestions in your viewers” part pops up extra controls for the brand new part. Creators can then resolve if they need solely shorts, livestreams, or full movies there — or all of these or a mixture of two. There are additionally choices to incorporate all content material or simply current materials.

The function has been in testing for months; a video posted to the Creator Insider channel previewed it six months in the past, and YouTube up to date its test features and experiments page on August eighth discussing the check. The documentation says the function was necessary initially, however when it rolls out to everybody, creators can then decide out. (I used to be capable of flip it off, so it appears as if that’s true now.)
