Notifications on Android operating systems are useful but annoying at the same time. Even if you avoid third-party apps you will get notifications from the system apps. When we talk about system apps, YouTube is one of such apps that are preinstalled in almost each and every phone. We like to get notified about the activities on the channel that we are subscribed to even we intentionally press the bell icon to get notifications about latest updates. The recommended videos are the reason we want to turn off YouTube notifications because those are mostly irrelevant.
Some people disable all the notifications from the system level settings when they get annoyed with irrelevant recommendations. Though it works well but you should not disable all notifications in the system level. The reason is simple; you will miss the important notifications about the channels you are subscribed to. Apart from that if someone shares a video with you; you will be unaware of it until you open the app.
