How To Enable the Chat Feature for YouTube Webinars

If you’ve tried using the live chat on a Jungle Scout webinar, you may get a message saying “Sign in to Chat” or, “Create a channel to join the chat”. To use the live chat feature on YouTube, you will need a Gmail account and a YouTube channel. If you have a Gmail account, it’s really easy to create a channel and can be done in under 1 minute (I promise, we timed it).

Step 1: Go to YouTube and click your avatar/username then click "Creator Studio"

Go to:

Step 2: Click "Create Channel"

Step 3: Pick the name you want to be associated with your YouTube channel. Keep in mind this will be the public facing name for any comments you make. 

Step 4: Become a YouTube star (Optional). Now that you have created a channel, you're halfway to posting a viral video and becoming a YouTube sensation.

Don’t worry, if you just want to join in the conversation during our webinars, you don’t have to post any videos on YouTube. Plus, once you have set this up, you’ll be able to use the live chat in all future webinars!

You can also find all of our past Webinars as well as a bunch of other Amazon-related content on our Youtube channel here: Jungle Scout Youtube Channel

Good luck and see you at the webinar!
