YouTube has reopened comments on art tracks that were disabled since December 2020. Art tracks contain sound recordings and album art, which helps to complete the catalogue on YouTube.
As per 9to5 Google, the official artist channels can enable the feature by clicking on the Settings menu, which is then followed by Channel status and features. Select the Community option and opt for Defaults. Through these settings, the channel can “Allow all comments” or “Hold potentially inappropriate comments for review.”
Comments on art tracks are not moderated. The comment section helped increase the overall traffic and engagement on the platform. The feature was quite popular among music lovers, hence users had shown dismay over disabling it.
While YouTube has not given any official update on the reopening of the feature, some users have been able to comment on the music videos lately.
