Easily Disable Notifications for Recommended Videos from YouTube

Not so long ago your beloved YouTube for Android has received an update and as strange as it might sound, this isn’t always a good thing. There are various useful features that have been added in the new version of the app, but what about those notifications for recommended videos?

They are supposed to help, I am aware of that, but the issue is that these notifications do not appear when you open the YouTube. They actually appear like all the notifications in the Android Notification area, so I think that they simply end up disturbing the overall experience.

These videos might truly match your previous viewing preferences, but they aren’t in the appropriate place. I love watching videos on YouTube and YouTube’s Android app is amazing, so I am not going to forget all about it so fast due to such a thing.

On the contrary, let me tell you that there is a method of shutting them off. Do you think the same and want to disable notifications for recommended videos? The steps from this guide will help you and don’t forget that you must be connected to the internet. Having an internet connection is a must if you want to succeed:

How to Easily Disable Notifications for Recommended Videos from YouTube:

  1. First of all, you have to open the YouTube app;
  2. Then, go to the app’s settings; do that by tapping the more button at the top right;
  3. Now, you have to select “Settings” from the menu;
  4. Up next, select “Notification”. This menu won’t be there if there is no internet connection; I have warned you about that from the start, so you have no excuse for complaining;
  5. Under ‘Mobile Notifications’ you just have to turn off the ‘Recommended videos’ notification and that was all you had to do this time!
