Creators can now hype prerecorded videos with “Premieres”
YouTube Premieres Feature
Some very exciting news from YouTube! A new feature was just launched called YouTube Premieres.
What it is: YouTube Premieres is a feature that lets you and your viewers watch and experience a new video together, much like a movie or TV show premiere. Premiering your video allows you to schedule a video upload and to create buzz around the video with a shareable watch page.
How it Works: Upload your video as you normally would. In the dropdown, select "Scheduled". Select your video. Add "Premiere" on the sidebar menu. Then, pick a date and time for your premiere. This is when your fans will watch your video for the first time.
Engagement Tips: There's a chat forum for you to engage with viewers and build momentum prior to your premiere launch.
Eligibility: This new feature is being rolled out as we speak and should be available to everyone in the near feature.
