Every YouTuber must have a handle as of November 14, 2022. If you don’t choose a handle for your channel, YouTube will do it for you.

You might be wondering what a handle is or how it varies from the current channel name.

While the YouTube Handle is essentially new feature, it is easier and creative for people to locate you and connect with you. Channel handles, as opposed to channel names, are particular to each channel, making it simpler for artists to create and maintain their own presence on YouTube. You can use these distinctive identifiers to determine whether you are interacting with the desired audience.

Several places—including the homepage of your channel, search results, comments, etc.—will display your handle. These can be used to advertise your channel on YouTube.
