YouTube is rolling out a new feature named Super Thanks through which viewers will be able to give their support to their favorite YouTube creator. This feature is available for creators in 68 countries, and soon YouTube is planning to expand its reach.
YouTube, on July 20, introduced this feature, which lets the viewers directly pay the creators. This feature could help the creators to make more money from their fans.
The fans can choose from four Super Thanks packages priced between $2 to $50 to show their gratitude towards their favorite YouTube video creator.
