YouTube Studio app persistent notifications (unable to clear or not disappearing after viewing) issue being looked into

YouTube Studio is the platform through which YouTube content creators can manage their channels. It was previously known as Creator Studio.

Through YouTube Studio, creators can easily manage various aspects of their channels. One of the most used functions is to see and respond to comments from the followers of the channel.

Like YouTube, YouTube Studio also has a dedicated app that allows easy access on mobile devices. However, some users of the app are facing notification issues (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12).

Some YouTube Studio app users are experiencing a glitch that prevents them from clearing the list of notifications. The notifications also don’t disappear after viewing them.

YouTube Studio app persistent notifications issue

As mentioned above, one of the main uses of YouTube Studio is to read and respond to comments from the channel’s community. The owner of the channel receives notifications of the comments left by followers.

Normally, after viewing the comments, the comment notifications should disappear. However, the notifications for comments do not go away according to multiple reports.

@TeamYouTube hey guys! I’m having an issue with my YouTube Studio mobile app where I read comments on my videos but they still appear unread, notification counter is not going down either. Deleted the app and cache data but problem persists, would you please help me fix it? Thx.

Some users also able to manually clear notifications

There is another issue with the app notifications where users are unable to clear them manually. Apparently, after doing so, the same notifications appear again.

@TeamYouTube hello. I can’t delete my notifications in my Youtube Studio app. When I click the bin, it deletes the notifs. But when I refreshed, they returned. Can you help me with this. Thanks.
