YouTube is rolling out new features designed to give viewers more control over what videos they watch. The new features will help you explore topics and related videos you’re interested in and remove suggestions and recommendations you’re not interested in.

In a post on the Official YouTube Blog, YouTube explains how and why it’s “doing more to put you in the driver’s seat”. YouTube states that it wants to “help viewers find new interests and passions,” and that you’re the “one true expert” able to do that.

Topics - Homepage - Up - Next - YouTube

Explore Topics on the Homepage and Up Next: YouTube is making it easier to explore topics and related videos. You’ll see these topics both at the top of your homepage (when you scroll up) and on the Up Next section below the video you’re currently watching.

Stop Certain Channels Being Recommended: On the flipside, you can now tell YouTube to stop recommending videos from particular channels. Just tap the three-dot menu next to a video and select “Don’t recommend channel” from the dropdown menu.
