The YouTube home page was the source of much love and hate from the start of this site. In the early stages of the site appearing on the front page could be a channel and it was one of the best ways to be discovered. The curated content has been presented regularly and seen often. As the site has grown, it has moved away from curated content for a formula home page. Now, YouTube algorithms pull out your viewing history and find out exactly what you want to see later.
You can subscribe to the channels you want to see more content from those channels. You can find a Subscribe button on any YouTube video or on a channel page. After subscribing to a channel, all the new videos you post will appear in your subscription feed. Below you can find a step by step procedure.
How To Subscribe To A Channel
- Open the YouTube app or go to www.youtube.com
- Log in to YouTube.
- If you are on the Home tab
- Under the video whose channel you wish to subscribe to, tap on the channel icon
- Tap on Subscribe button
If you are watching a video you want to subscribe to the channel:
- Under the video, tap on Subscribe button
After subscribing to a channel, you will see a list of recommended channels on your screen. These are based on related channels to which you are not yet subscribed. You can always watch the content of a channel before signing up. You can even start receiving notifications when a channel you sign up to post new content. By default, Youtube will only send you channel highlights.

If you are not subscribed to many YouTube channels, this may be great, but for those who have found a lot of channels they like and who sign up, there is an easy way to fix the YouTube homepage to be more manageable Instead of connecting to the general YouTube homepage, simply set the bookmark to the Youtube.com/feed/subscriptions login.
Only See Videos From YouTube Channels You Have Subscribed To [ Guide]
Do you remember the last time when you opened the YouTube app and saw the videos of the channels you subscribed to? I know, it’s weird if you notice your YouTube feed is full of videos that have nothing to do with your subscription box, rather these are the videos that YouTube believes might be interested. These days, we receive many more views of YouTube’s recommendation than our subscribers. And this makes sense for YouTube since changing the recommendation model helps them provide a more relaxed experience and broaden the audience.
That being said, I often miss videos of channels that I have subscribed to and if you are like me, below you can find a simple and fast way to see only the videos of the YouTube channels to which you subscribed.
- Make sure you log in to your YouTube account.
- Click on this link: https://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions
- Add the URL to your bookmark.
Every time you click on the bookmark, it will open the page with your YouTube page with the videos of the channels you subscribe to.
For it to work, you need Android 7.1 or later and a compatible startup program. All popular launchers like Google Now, Launcher One Plus, Nova Launcher should work properly.
- Press and hold the YouTube icon, new options will appear
- From the pop-up window, long press the subscription option
- Place the shortcut to your home screen by dragging it
You are done.

Now, whenever you tap on this YouTube shortcut that you have now on the home screen, open the YouTube app with all the videos you are subscribed to. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work on iOS devices. The only option is to get into the habit of opening the YouTube app and manually tapping the Subscriptions option each time.
That’s it for today. If you have any query feel free to drop that in the comment section.
