With 2.1 billion active subscribers, you would think YouTube could make it easier to organize your subscriptions. The site supports manually created playlists, but if you want to group channels by category, for instance, you need to turn to a third-party tool.
Here are a few tips on how to organize your YouTube subscriptions:
- Create playlists: Create playlists of channels you like to watch and organize them by topic, genre or any other criteria that works for you. You can also add videos to existing playlists for easy access.
- Use the Subscription tab: YouTube’s Subscription tab makes it easy to keep track of new videos from channels you’ve subscribed to. You can also sort the videos by the most recent, or by the channel.
- Use the YouTube Studio: YouTube Studio is a tool for creators, but it can also be useful for viewers. You can use it to organize your subscriptions and view analytics for your own channel.
- Use YouTube’s sorting options: YouTube allows you to sort your subscriptions by alphabetical order, relevance, and upload date. You can also choose to show only channels that have new videos.
- Unsubscribe from channels that you no longer watch: Unsubscribing from channels you no longer watch will declutter your subscriptions and make it easier to find the channels you enjoy.
- Use third-party tools: There are various third-party tools available, such as Octoly or PocketTube, that allow you to organize and filter your subscriptions.
By using these tips and tools, you can easily keep track of your YouTube subscriptions and make sure you don’t miss any new videos from your favorite channels.
