How to Only See Videos From YouTube Channels You Have Subscribed To.
When was the last time you opened the YouTube app and saw videos of people you follow? I know this is rare. My YouTube channel is filled with videos that have nothing to do with my subscription, rather, those videos that YouTube thinks might be of interest to me. And as YouTube I can verify this myself with YouTube analytics. We get a lot more views these days from YouTube recommendations than from our subscribers. And it makes sense for YouTube, as moving to a recommendation model helps them provide a quieter experience and expand their audience.
That said, if you, like me, often miss awesome videos from people you follow, here’s a quick and easy way to only see videos from YouTube channels you follow.
- Make sure you are signed in to your YouTube account.
- Click on this link – https://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions
- Add your bookmark url.
Each time you click on the above bookmark, a page opens with your YouTube page with videos from the channels you are subscribed to.
For this to work, you need Android 7.1 or higher and a compatible launcher. All popular launchers like Google Now, Nova launcher, One Plus should work right out of the box.
- Press and hold the YouTube icon, new options will appear.
- In the pop-up window, press and hold the subscription option again.
- Drag the shortcut to your home screen
- That’s it
Now, when you click on the YouTube shortcut on the home screen, the YouTube app opens with all the videos you are subscribed to. Unfortunately this doesn’t work on iOS devices. Your only option is to get in the habit of opening the YouTube app and manually clicking the Subscriptions option each time.
