YouTube Notifications in the Navigation Bar

YouTube has recently started to experiment with replacing Google+ notifications in the navigation bar with YouTube notifications. You get notifications for recently uploaded videos from your subscribed channels, but only if you've enabled notifications for those channels. For example, you can go to the subscription manager and click the bell icon next to a channel to enable or disable notifications.

The settings button sends you to the Notifications section from YouTube's Settings page and the 3-dot icon next to each notification lets you turn off notifications from the corresponding channel.

If you don't like this experiment, you can always clear cookies for in your browser's settings and opt out.


  1. You say Google is "replacing" G+ notifications with youTube notifications. Is it possible to receive notifications from both, or would it be only possible from one or the other?

    1. Right now, it's not possible, but it would make sense to get all the notifications, no matter what Google service you are using. YouTube could be a source of content, just like Google+, Google Photos and maybe other Google services: Calendar, Gmail, Drive etc.

      Just in case anyone is wondering, this cookie value works for opting in:
      * Go to and change VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE cookie value to Qa1hUZu3gtk using an extension like EditThisCookie for Chrome, Cookies Manager+ for Firefox or even directly from the browser's settings.

    2. This no longer works. The new shit system is now permanent.

      My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.

  2. I always thought that if it ain't broken don't fix it.

    1. That's not how Google works. would still look like this:

  3. I noticed this a while ago, but it only appeared that way when you're browsing YouTube, not other Google sites.

    Definitely a step down IMO, you can't even read or reply to comments from the notification panel anymore. Thankfully the notifications went back to normal for me some time ago.

  4. So I don't have my G+ plus connected to my youtube. Result?
    The bell is gone. No notification panel.
    If it wasn't for the pop up notifications, I would not get any notifications at all. When I get a comment on my comment for example. Nada.
    Where on earth are my YT notification? Like in one place, to looks through them.

  5. Google does not know how to do SOCIAL systems. This notification system is terrible, SLOW and full of BUGs.

  6. Wow!nice article and containing allot of information about the Record and send video email well done.

My name is Emily Thomas and I am from Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL . A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about EDWARD JONES FINANCE,that they can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. I have been in a financial mess for the pass 7 months now, She advised I give it a try so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation to him, he therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $390,000.00 at a very low interest rate of 2% and today I am a proud business owner and can now take good care of my kids, If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 2% and better repayment schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES FINANCE email:- {} OR Text +1(307) 241-3712
