What is YouTube Rewind 2018? (+ How to Watch)

08 December 2018

The 2018 video, which was released Thursday and is the longest Rewind to date, opens with an appearance by Will Smith (recreating birthday Grand Canyon video), and features celebrity appearances by John Oliver, Trevor Noah and Olympic skater Adam Rippon.

Anyway, YouTube is happy to report that local YouTubers had their subscribers double in count, with a total of eight local channel having more than a million subscribers each.

It was still pleasant to see those present take over control of Rewind and use it to let the fans control some aspects of it as well.

YouTube also released info on its top trending music videos of the year - no surprise the vast majority of them are Spanish language, considering that was the case last year.

The video which was posted on February 4, 2018, has been viewed 76,828,640 times.

Another YouTube Rewind 2018 snub would certainly be all of the controversy surrounding Logan Paul. The lack of these moments reiterates the divide between how the platform wants to be seen and the actual culture that creators participate in. Despite featuring celebrities and famous figures like Will Smith, Ninja, Casey Neistat, and numerous others, Youtube Rewind 2018 fails to capture on some of the most notable events of 2018.

The YouTube community in Singapore continued growing this year, with more creators joining the platform.

In 2017, Disney dropped YouTube vlogger Felix Kjellberg, known as "PewDiePie", from its collection of YouTube channels called Maker Studios. In past years, the list mixed viral videos with clips from shows like "The Late Late Show".

These days, as YouTube becomes endlessly bigger and bigger it seems that people are more concerned with what is not in the Rewind than with what is. While the list is not based exclusively on views, the announcement garnered 53 million views in seven days.

The No. 1 trending video was "To our daughter", a surprise baby announcement from YouTube creator and social-media star Kylie Jenner. What better way to end the year than to thank those who made it the way it was?

Google Singapore's head of communications, Ms Angeline Leow, said YouTube is a platform for Singaporeans to be entertained and to express themselves.
