A number is starting to appear in YouTube Tab title recently like in the image (686) What does it mean? It's also increasing day by day.
A number is starting to appear in YouTube Tab title - what does it mean?
It's apparently yet another unannounced change made by Google/ YouTube and the numbers in the brackets in the browsers tab apparently indicate how many comments/ posts you currently have on YouTube which you have not yet read/ checked...
So how can I remove it?
- sign in to your YouTube account
- click on the bell icon (top right side in YouTube)
- click on the gear icon
- deactivate "desktop notifications"
