Creators can now pause comments on YouTube videos

YouTube has introduced new comment controls for creators, including the ability to pause comments. This feature allows existing comments to remain visible while preventing new comments from being submitted. This gives creators more flexibility and control over their comment sections, allowing them to focus on other aspects of their channel without worrying about managing incoming comments. In addition to the pause feature, YouTube has reorganized and renamed some of the comment settings, providing creators with more specific moderation options. These options include holding inappropriate comments for review, casting a broader net for comments that need review, and holding all comments for approval before they are posted publicly.Creators can also choose to have comments turned on without any additional filters. Overall, these new features aim to provide a balance between fostering a sense of community in the comment sections while also managing potentially negative or inappropriate comments.
