You find answers on YouTube, the second largest search engine after Google.
But YouTube Is owned by Google.
Search on these two platforms and you’ll get answers to almost every question.
What if you can get answers to related questions delivered to your inbox?
That would be cool.
So if you find a YouTube channel with content you want to keep an eye on, you can subscribe to the channel. When you do that, you will see videos of that channel in the your video stream whenever you log onto your channel.
You can also request for new videos to be delivered to your inbox via the subscription preference menu. That way you will never miss a video update from your favorite YouTube Channel.
To subscribe to a YouTube Channel, you’ll need a Google account. Chance are, you would already have one. If not, you can easily create one by going to Google.com.
Once you have a Google account, you are 3 steps away from staying informed of your favorite channel:
- Go to your favorite YouTube channel, on the home page you will see a subscribe button
- Click on that. Then next to the button, you will see a settings icon
- Click on the setting’s icon and choose “Send me updates”
This way, you’ll get new YouTube videos delivered to your inbox every time a new video is uploaded to the channel you subscribe to. And you can watch the video right on your Gmail.
However, if you decide you are happy to only receive updates on your feed, you can always change the setting by checking the appropriate box under subscription preference. Do note that you may miss some updates since the feeds get pushed down as new videos are released.
