Among the announcements, YouTube is getting a redesigned Creator Hub, perks for creators through its new “YouTube for Creators” program, expanded support and more. The company shared more on the new Creator Hub rolling out today (pictured above):

Redesigned Creator Hub: The Creator Hub is the one place where you can discover all the programs and creator resources YouTube has to offer. Available in 23 languages, it’s also the best place to learn all the ways you can connect with the creator community while taking advantage of tools and benefits designed to keep your channel (or channels) growing.

Creators are also getting expanded support with YouTube noting it has stepped up resources “by 100x so that every creator who has joined the Partner Program can get answers via email from a real person here at YouTube.”

As for the new YouTube for Creators program, YouTube will begin offering perks for channels that reach 0, 100, and 10,000 subscribers. That’s something that it already does for other subscriber milestones through its Creator Awards program.

YouTube is also making some changes to the way it handles strikes for accounts and has updated its support docs on best practices for keeping an account in good standing.
