Everyone makes mistakes, but if you screw up a fact or twist a line in a YouTube video, it can be difficult to correct the mistake. You can edit and re-upload the video, but that means you’ll lose all your comments and engagement stats. You can add a comment to the video description or pin a comment with the correction, but that will go unnoticed by most viewers.

That’s why YouTube introduces a new feature called “corrections” that allows creators to easily add more obvious fixes. After a video is uploaded, creators can add fixes that appear as info cards in the top right corner of a video at the relevant timestamp (but it only seems that way for the first fix in a given video). Viewers can then click the card to expand the correction notes in the video description.

This is what it looks like in a video:

The feature feels a bit ad-hoc, but is undoubtedly still very useful. YouTube shouldn’t force creators to choose between changing the record and getting their videos to perform at their best, so any tool that helps them do both is welcome.
