Youtube is launching Super Stickers to help creators earn more money while also connecting with their audience.
Super Stickers are launching today in 60 countries to all eligible creators (same creator eligibility criteria as Super Chat), allowing Youtube viewers to buy cool stickers to connect with video creators during live streams and Premieres.
Youtube's initial release comes with 8 distinct sticker packs, 5 of which are animated and have unique bios that add even more color to connections with fans. If Youtube viewers like Popo the hippopotamus, they can send the video creator stickers the next time they’re on a hot streak.
Super Stickers are inspired by the success of Super Chat, which allows fans to purchase messages that stand out within a live chat and Premieres. There are now over 100,000 channels who have received Super Chats, with some streams earning more than $400 per minute.
Enabling Super Stickers is as simple as a click of a button. Creators who already use Super Chat will be automatically opted in.
The first launch and upcoming launches of Super Stickers include translated sticker packs for English, French, Japanese, Korean, and Portugues.
In the coming months, Youtube promised to create and release more sticker packs.
