YouTube has announced a raft of planned features for content creators including the ability for fans to donate money directly to YouTubers.
Some creators already use third-party websites like Patreon which let subscribers donate money to their favourite projects.
YouTube revealed it is working on its own donation system, in a video uploaded to the YouTube Creators channel.
The video also revealed that YouTube is planning to allow creators to legally record cover versions of pop songs and share the advertising revenue with Google and the record labels.
Another new feature will allow fans to write subtitles for videos, where content creators have neglected to provide their own.
The YouTube team are also planning to launch a royalty-free sound effect library, and are working on a creator app which will allow videomakers to track statistics and advertising revenue on-the-go.
