No email notifications for comments on YouTube, fix being worked on
If you haven’t been receiving email notifications for comments posted by viewers on your YouTube channel, you are not alone. Other YouTubers are also complaining about it.
Despite enabled notification settings, YouTube users report of not receiving emails for the posted comments and added replies by viewers on their channels. Bell notifications, however, do show up for majority of users.
The issue was first reported in June, 2015 and has since been discussed across multiple threads. On September 9, 2015 users got to hear from a top contributor of the official Google forums, who said that
“YouTube is working on a fix for this issue, so hopefully soon your email notifications of new comments will return”.
After a long gap on June 12, 2017 he mentioned
“YouTube is aware of the issue”.
He further added
“YouTube hasn’t provided any technical details”
on June 26, 2017.
YouTube, despite the escalating number of reported use-cases since 2015, has not rolled out a fix yet. In case you have been facing the aforementioned problem for your channel as well, keep a tab here as we will keep you posted in case of any further updates.
