Given that the app comes pre-installed on almost all devices, it is marginally bolstered and could even include some activations from back before the Play Store even existed. The company recently rolled out a new tool — “Super Thanks” — that will let users tip their favorite creators on the platform. This new feature gives the creators yet another way to earn money while also allowing them to strengthen their relationships with the viewers.
Fans watching YouTube videos can now purchase Super Thanks to express their gratitude and show support to the content creators. They will see an animated GIF and, as a bonus, get a distinct, colorful comment to highlight their purchase, which the creators can respond to.
