The UI at the time of 'Hiding low evaluation number' revealed is as follows. Numerical values are displayed on the high-rated icon side, while there is no numerical value displayed on the Dislike (low-rated) icon side. This function was created in response to requests for well-being on the creator side and requests for systematic vandalism measures, and at the time of announcement, only small-scale tests were conducted, but in 2021 It seems that it may be implemented within the reach of general users in April.




Also, since this function only 'hides' the low evaluation number, the low evaluation number is counted internally. The counted low ratings can be checked from YouTube Studio, which integrates management, analysis, editing of posted movies, etc. of your own YouTube channel.




In addition, rather than the official YouTube tweet that announced this function, the tweet 'What should I do about an objectively terrible movie or a harmful movie like fraud?' Collects 'likes'. I will.
