YouTube gets a cut of the action, of course — for every donation made in the United States, YouTube takes $0.21 plus 5% of the total donation. So donating $1.00 to your favorite gaming channel means that the video creator would take home $0.74 while YouTube would get $0.26. Donating $5.00, meanwhile, would mean the video creator would keep $4.54 while YouTube would keep $0.46.

Google has started out by bringing the feature to Australia, Japan, Mexico, and the United States but we can expect to see it rolling out to other countries in the near future if it’s well received. To read more important details of this great new feature, you ought to head over to Android Police’s page by clicking the source link below.
