My watch hours are decreasing for some reason, I uploaded a few videos and instead of adding up the watch hours they are decreasing I wanna know why please answer and no I unlisted most of my videos they are still decreasing nonstop
Not all watch hours count towards the YouTube Partner Program threshold. What counts as a valid public watch hour:
Watch hours gained from videos you’ve set public
Watch hours gained through the following types of video do not count towards the YPP threshold:
Private videosUnlisted videosDeleted videosAd campaigns Videos played from the ‘Stories and short videos’ shelfwatch hours gained from videos less than 60 seconds in length
so if you have any unlisted or private videos make them public. after 48-72 hours your watch hours will update. @Mommy & The Cubs @cute devil
How did you check Your watch hours ? YouTube studio mobile apps or computer did you check Your watch hours on monetization tab ? can you attach links to your channels can you attach screenshots?
recently YouTube studio app has been updated, earlier you have seen your watch time as minutes but after this update you must see your watch time as hours. so if you noticed a huge amount of different figures on your studio app you can consider that you have been watching for minutes.
