YouTube Finally Expands Custom Thumbnails To More Partners…But You Still May Have To Wait

Back in April when YouTube opened up their partner program to everyone with an account in good standing, one of the first things that everyone got excited about was the prospect of custom thumbnails.

Back in April when YouTube opened up their partner program to everyone with an account in good standing, one of the first things that everyone got excited about was the prospect of custom thumbnails.  However, while YouTube began allowing new “partners” to monetize their videos, custom thumbnails were still not available…until today.

This afternoon, YouTube Product Manager Andy Stack announced on the YouTube Creators blog that the video site is expanding custom thumbnails to more partners.  He writes, “Over the past few months, we’ve been testing the impact of custom thumbnails on viewer watch time and engagement.  Today, we’re expanding access to custom thumbnails for more YouTube partners, and over time, we aim to make them available to all partners in good standing.”
