A Subscription is a feature whereby one receives the latest additions to a YouTube user's videos, a YouTube tag, a YouTube search term or a YouTube playlist. There are two types of subscribing to channels and topics: choosing a channel and clicking the "Subscribe" button on the user's channel page or choosing a video and clicking the Subscribe button below that user's video.

The Subscribe Button is a button for choosing types of subscriptions. The "Subscribe" Button has gotten over 35 changes. It was added in October 2005. A user cannot view another user's subscriptions, as those are kept private, unless the other user sets their subscriptions to public.

YouTube Subscribe Button[]

Current Subscribe Button Features[]

  • If a user clicks on the "Subscribe" button, the word "Subscribe" would change to "Subscribed".
  • By clicking the "Subscribe" button, users are able to subscribe to another user's whole channel, get notified about a subscribed channel's latest videos, latest playlists, latest community posts, latest shorts and latest livestreams. Users will get a maximum of three new video notifications from every subscribed channel in a 24-hour period.
  • If a user is subscribed to a channel, next to the word "Subscribed" on the button, there will be a bell icon which if clicked, there will show four options: "All", "Personalized", "None", and "Unsubscribe".
    • Choosing the "All" subscription option would give the user notifications of every video, playlists, community posts and livestreams from that subscribed channel. There would be two curved lines: one above the top left and the other at the top right of the bell icon. The icon would also be filled in with color.
    • Choosing the "Personalized" subscription option would give the user notifications from that subscribed channel, but only for the videos which are recommended by the YouTube Algorithm, based on your Watch History, Search History and other factors. The bell icon would have no curved lines and it would not be filled in with color. This subscription option is the default option chosen when the user subscribes to a channel.
    • Choosing the "None" subscription option would give the user no notifications from that channel, but it'll still be subscribed to that user's channel. The bell icon, instead of having curved lines, would have a diagonal line across it and it also would not be filled in with color.
    • (This Option is not a Subscription Type) Choosing the "Unsubscribe" option would prompt the user by asking “Unsubscribe from (channel name)?” There will be two options, "YES" or "NO". If the user clicked on the "Yes" option, the subscription would cancel it with that channel. By clicking the "No" Option, nothing will change, and the user will still be subscribed to that channel. The Unsubscribe option instead of having a Notification Bell icon has a small circle at the top Centre and a big semi-circle at the center bottom with the curved side facing upwards. These circles form a body with only a torso and a head. There is also a - (Minus) icon next to the head icon.

  • The Subscribe Button when hovered over with a cursor would be highlighted and say, "Click to be notified of new videos from this channel" (Feature lasted only in 2011).

  • A red YouTube play button icon was situated at the left of the Subscribe Button. (Feature lasted Between 2013 - 2017)

Main article: List of most-subscribed YouTube channels by month

The following is a chart featuring a list of the 250 most subscribed YouTube channels and topics (Updated as of July 12, 2024). This list will not include any terminated or deleted channels, or channels with their subscriber count hidden. However, channels that have seen the recent purge in subscribers (Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, etc.) will be included in this list because it is the subscriber count shown on YouTube. Even VEVO channels, which have been blocked from gaining subscribers, will be included in the list as well. ( or channels with hidden subscriber count

On September 17, 2019, YouTube changed its API so that viewers can only see abbreviated subscriber counts. only three significant figures can be seen, and the number is rounded down (Ex: 24,186,079 to 24.1M). The list will now only show abbreviated subscriber counts.
