It’s easy to comment on a YouTube video or reply to a comment left by another viewer.
You can add comments on your computer or in the YouTube app on your mobile device.
Before you leave a comment, you’ll need to log in to YouTube and create a personal channel, if you don’t already have one.

The comments below a YouTube video are sometimes more fun than the video itself, and it’s easy to join the conversation with a couple of clicks.

You can watch videos on YouTube without signing in, but you can’t add comments until you sign in with your Google account.

When you leave your first comment, you agree to set up your own YouTube channel. This doesn’t mean you have to post videos (though you can).

How to comment on YouTube videos on your computer

Before you leave a comment on a YouTube video, make sure you’re signed in. If you are, your Google photo or icon will appear in the upper right corner of your browser window.

If not, you’ll see a blue Sign In box in that corner.

1. Click the blue Sign In box.

2. This will take you to a page where you can choose the Google account you want to use to sign in to YouTube. Click on the account (if it appears) or enter your account information.

3. On the next screen, enter your account password.

4. You’ll be auto-directed back to YouTube.

If you try to comment when you aren’t signed in, YouTube will automatically send you to your Google sign-in page.

Once you sign in, you’ll be able to comment on YouTube videos:

1. Scroll down to the Comments section. It’s below the description of the video.

2. Click into the line that says, “Add a public comment…”

3. Add your comment.

4. Click the COMMENT box.

You can also reply to another user’s comment:

1. Click REPLY under the comment you want to comment on.

2. Click on the line that says, “Add a public reply…”

3. Click the REPLY box.

Some videos (including most videos of children) have comments disabled. You can’t comment on those videos.

How to comment on YouTube videos on a mobile device

When you use the YouTube app on your mobile device, you can easily leave comments.

1. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to find the comments section. If you’re using a small device, such as a phone, the comments are below the other recommended videos, so keep scrolling.

2. Click into the line that says, “Add a public comment…”

3. Click the blue arrow icon to make your comment.

You can also reply to a comment in the YouTube app:

1. Click the speech bubble icon under the comment.

2. Click on the line that says, “Add a public reply…”

3. Click the blue arrow icon to record your reply.
