New requirements for content creators to join the YouTube Partner Program and monetize their channels were revealed by YouTube, Google’s free video-sharing service. The most recent YouTube rules appear to be creator-friendly; the company has eased many of the requirements, making it simpler for newer content creators to start making money on YouTube.

The YouTube Partner Program (YPP) has updated its rules, allowing anyone with at least 500 subscribers to apply for the monetization program as long as they have produced three or more public videos in the previous 90 days that have received at least 3,000 watch hours, or 3 million short views.
