YouTube End Screen Templates

 

Several years ago, the free video sharing site YouTube launched its mobile-friendly “End Screens” feature. This feature has the aim of attracting video viewers to keep watching other videos even though the video they are watching has been completed. The End Screens feature is very useful for content creators. To do this, they can insert a special thumbnail at the end of the video, which can be used to ask viewers to view other videos after they finish watching the video. Alternatively, content creators can also insert a thumbnail which will redirect them to the subscribe channel button, visit collaborator channels, and so on. Previously, YouTube has released the Annotations feature, a feature that can only be accessed from the desktop and can also be used to manually create End Screens by adding clickable links to the video in question.
