Right now my YouTube homepage shows the activity from my friends on Google+ (and I don't have many friends there, so the last activity on my homepage was six months ago).

I have the official YouTube app for iPhone, and the homepage shows the most popular videos for the day, and it is amazing.

How can I instead show these popular videos on my homepage rather than the social feed, and rather than having to subscribe to a bunch of channels?

YouTube shows you your Subscriptions page as default. You could just click the Browse link, and you will be taken to a list of the most popular videos, regardless of your friends'.

There does not seem to be a way to set this as the default YouTube start page, but you could always just create a bookmark for the Browse page.


The solution is to subscribe to Popular on YouTube channel. It is channel auto generated by YouTube. Subscribing will cause new videos show on your YouTube homepage.
