You can finally tip your favorite YouTubers for a job well done, thanks to the new Fan Funding feature. According to AndroidPolice, all it takes is clicking the relevant icon on the top left corner of a video, interacting with the support button on a user's channel, or accessing the functionality through the YouTube Android app.
As is often the case with these things, YouTube will subtract a processing fee from any contribution made. The amount taken varies slightly from country to country but it looks like the video-sharing site imposes at least a 5% charge. Currently, only users located in Australia, Japan, Mexico, and the United States can make donations but Google has plans to eventually extend the service. Fan Funding is part of YouTube's on-going quest to meet the needs of its content creators, which includes developing a new mobile app and a captioning system.
