How to turn on comments on YouTube ?

Mar 8, 20222 min readParvathy Nair

The YouTube comment section can be one of the funniest places on the internet, and it's a place of feedback and engagement. Comments might not always be positive, but they are a great way to promote the video and give the audience a small glimpse of what the video is about from the audience's point of view. Why are comments so important in a YouTube video

Comments can help you gain popularity, and if your content is great, you get more positive feedback, and therefore you can rank higher. A comment section is also a place of engagement, and reading this feedback can help you put out more quality content out there. You might have also seen where YouTube comments have been disabled. This is to minimize the negative feedback that might come the creator's way.

Now that we have covered that topic, it's time to move on to the steps to turn on comments on YouTube.

Step 4: Turn On/Off

As you scroll down, you will be able to see the "allow comments" option; use the toggle bar to turn on/off the comments and then tap Save to finish the process.

The option does not delete the comments that were previously there on the video. When you disable comments, it just prevents the new comments from showing up.
