Youtube Removing Annotations

Youtube Removing Annotations

Youtube has officially announced that Youtube annotations will be a thing of a past starting on May 2nd. The reason for the removal of this heavily used tool is that it only worked on desktop, which left mobile users left in the dark when it came to links, corrections, or further explanations. The annotations feature will be replaced with Cards and End Screens features which work on both desktop and on mobile but there is a drawback. The annotation system allowed for on the fly links to other videos or creative ways for Youtube creators to get their viewers to other channels, with the removal of this feature they will have to find new ways to be creative with their methods of getting users to their other videos. The good news is that any video created before May 2nd will keep their annotations, you just can’t create any more annotated bubbles or buttons after that date.
