After first launching it on desktop last March, YouTube is now also bringing its pre-publish verification tool to the mobile app, which will allow those uploading their content on the go to ensure that it is fully eligible for monetization before publishing. .

As you can see in this example (on desktop), YouTube’s pre-release checker scans the content of your upload for a range of potential violations, including copyright issues and ad suitability, before publishing your clip.

This helps creators avoid disappointment after the fact, and can be great for staying aware of potential attacks and related issues, which can not only reduce your ability to earn money, but can also see your channel hit with penalties. .

Although there are some differences in the mobile version of the process.

As explained by YouTube:

“Copyright claims will only be run once the video has been uploaded and processed on the main YouTube app, and monetization checks will only be run once the video has been activated for viewing. monetization on the Studio mobile app.”

So essentially verifications can take a bit longer via mobile – although YouTube has also added a new notification process to help.

“If a creator uploads a video and sets it to ‘Public’, they will receive a notification to consider waiting for the reviews to complete. Creators will also be able to enable notifications to let them know when the reviews are complete, so that they can then operate the clip.

Pre-release checks are not available for short films (because they are too short) and will only be available for those in the YouTube Partner Program.

It’s a handy tool, and the creators found tremendous value in the desktop app’s alerts. And now they will be able to get the same information via mobile, which will help streamline the creation and download process.

YouTube says pre-publish checks will be rolling out to mobile users “over the next two weeks.”
