annotations

The ability to add or edit annotations was removed on 2 May

Existing annotations will still be displayed, but aren't editable

What's changed? As announced in March, YouTube has removed the ability to add or edit annotations. Learn more
What hasn't changed? Existing annotations continue to be displayed on desktop computers.
Why is this change occurring? Annotations are outdated. They don't even work on mobile devices, which represent 60% of YouTube watch time. And annotation usage has dropped by 70% as creators switch to cards and our new end screens.
Mobile-friendly alternatives: Use cards to link to related videos, channels, websites and polls. Use end screens to promote things to viewers when they're ready to click – at the end of your video. Together, end screens and cards are at least five times better at keeping viewers on your channel.
