    What are those topic tags on the top of the YouTube feed called? I'd like to find a way to clear some or turn them off altogether but I can't search for the info because I'm not even sure what they are called. I know I saw it once in an article from AA or Drippler but I can't find it now. Hopefully I can clear then without deleting my YouTube history.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply but they are already off. I've been through all the settings. The only thing I haven't done is delete my history. I'm hoping to avoid that.

    Aren't those your Subscriptions and can be turned on and off under Subscriptions > All > Manage ? Or maybe I'm thinking of something completely different than what you are asking?

    They're not my subscriptions either. For example I'll watch a video about Ford vs Ram and then I'll have a Ford tag up top. I want to delete that Ford tag. Nothing happens if I long press it and if I tap it, all Ford videos come up.

    I only see them when I used the app. When I use my browser in desktop mode I don't see them.

    Hmmmmm, I'm not sure. The only little bubble looking icons at the top of my YouTube app are my current subscriptions.

    If you got the three dots to lower of video that came up you can do not interested or don't recommend

    The bubbles on the top are what I'm talking about. Where it says "tools" "pickup trucks". Those tags. [​IMG]

    Edit: I stand corrected, on my YouTube app screen those bubbles at the top seem to be things I have searched for recently

    I stand corrected again. Looking at my YouTube app, the bubbles at the top of the screen are not things I have searched for. I definitely have not searched for Madden NFL or Pop Music ever. I have no idea where they come from (Google Assistant suggestions maybe?) or how to clear them. [​IMG]
