If you’re having some issues concerning your channel notifications on YouTube like when you’re not getting any notifications from YouTube, check and manage Do Not Disturb settings on your phone. If DND is enabled, alerts from certain apps like YouTube may be hindered. In that case, making necessary adjustments to your phone’s DND settings or turning DND feature completely would likely be necessary.


Also consider verifying your YouTube app and Android notification settings to ensure that they’re properly configured. Lastly, make sure that you are signed into the correct YouTube account.
