YouTube Live Subscriber Count: How to Check Live YouTube Subscriber Using Different Methods

Here is how you can keep an eye on your real-time YouTube subscriber count.

YouTube is the most popular video-sharing platform in 2022 and there are millions of YouTube channels on the platform. This video charging platform from Google is available on multiple platforms like Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, and almost any device that supports interest and comes with a browser. One of the key things to grow on YouTube is the subscribers.

Subscribers in simple terms are people or accounts that are subscribed to your channel or follow your channel in order to consume content. A subscriber will be able to see videos of those channels to which he has subscribed on his feed. In a way, more subscribers will get more views and the more subscribers a channel gets, the more popular the channel gets. 

For a YouTuber creator, the subscriber count reflects how many viewers have subscribed to follow your YouTube channel. You can view your subscriber count in real-time and view your growth over time in YouTube Analytics. In case you are not a YouTube creator, there are other ways to keep track of your favourite YouTuber by using some third-party websites to keep track of real-time data. In this guide, we will take a look at how one can keep track of real-time YouTube Subscriber Count as a creator and as a non-creator as well.

Understanding YouTube Live Subscriber Count

If you are a YouTuber, you must be aware that YouTube won’t update the subscriber count as soon as someone subscribes to you. That’s because YouTube has a different method to update the subscriber count. The overall subscriber count is shortened depending on the number of subscribers your channel has.

If you have… then your subscriber count updates for every:
Less than 1,000 subscribers 1 new subscriber
1,000–9,999 subscribers 10 new subscribers
10,000–99,999 subscribers 100 new subscribers
100,000–999,999 subscribers 1,000 new subscribers
1,000,000–9,999,999 subscribers 10,000 new subscribers
10,000,000–99,999,999 subscribers 100,000 new subscribers
100,000,000–999,999,999 subscribers 1,000,000 new subscribers
