Goodbye YT Annotations [2nd May]
2017-04-08, 05:33 AM,
The ability to add or edit annotations is going away May 2

Existing annotations will still be shown but won’t be editable

What’s changing? On May 2, YouTube will turn off the ability to add or edit annotations. Learn more

What’s not changing? Existing annotations will continue to show on desktop computers.

Why this change? Annotations are outdated. They don’t even work on mobile devices, which represent 60% of YouTube watch time. And annotation usage has dropped by 70% as creators switch to cards and our new end screens.

Mobile-friendly alternatives: Use cards to link to related videos, channels, websites, and polls. Use end screens to promote things to viewers when they’re ready to click – at the end of your video. Together, end screens and cards are at least 5 times better at keeping viewers on your channel.

Yes! Finally!
Annotation was very good feature at first, but then people started to overuse it. Card is much better.

I prefer cards as well.

It's a good and big change, I am happy YouTube is pushing through with it.

I am not even sure if the Annotations show on the TV, but cards generally tend to captivate the user's attention a lot more anyway!
