How to tag someone on Youtube in the video title and description

Youtube allows tagging someone on title and description as well.

Tagging someone will link to their channel homepage and youtube will notify them. Their subscribers may also have the video shown up as recommended video.

Few things to keep in mind before mentioning someone in your title and description:

  • The channel you are mentioning and your channel must have more than 1000 subscribers.
  • You can mention multiple channels on your youtube video as long as the whole mention fits in the character limits.

It is super easy to mention someone in your video tile or description.

In the Youtube Studio, when you create or edit your video’s title or description, just type the “@” symbol and then the channel name you want to mention without space.

For Instance, “A Video by @Mrbeast”

Youtube doesn’t allow proper tagging features but there are still some ways you can tag other users.

Since youtube is the biggest video-sharing platform with more than 500 hours of content being uploaded each minute and millions of content watched every minute, there is very little chance youtube will introduce a proper tagging feature.
