How does it feel to earn the Silver, Gold, or Diamond Play Button? Find out from some of YouTube’s biggest and brightest.
Reach 10 million subscribers, and you'll be awarded the Diamond Play Button. It's the highest award there is, and shows you're one of the biggest creators on YouTube.
Land a whole 1 million subscribers, and you'll soon be hanging a big, shiny Gold Play Button on your wall for everyone to see.
Get to 100,000 subscribers, and you'll be awarded with a shimmering Silver Play Button that you can proudly show to family, friends, and fans.
A channel qualifies as soon as it passes the number of subscribers required for each award.
We currently offer awards for three channel milestones:
Once your channel qualifies, look out for a notification in your Creator Studio Dashboard, including your unique order code. You'll be able to enter your information and shipping address. The notification should appear in your dashboard in the month following your milestone, so sit tight!
Once you provide your shipping address, the awards take 8 to 12 weeks for processing and shipping.
We know that achieving these milestones takes a ton of work, and we want to recognize channels that have legitimately earned their fan bases. To keep the playing field fair, if we find out that a channel hasn’t played by the rules, they may be disqualified from getting an award.
