YouTube is adding a new metric to make it possible for creators to analyze how the video performs within the first 24 hours after uploading. Users can access the new metric in the video analytics section of the YouTube creator studio. To recover the data, choose “First 24 hours” from the date picker in the top right-hand corner.

You will be shown a summary at the top of the screen after opening the first 24 hours view. The summary, therefore, gives you the total number of views and how that compares with your previous videos. As you move down, you will get to see the total watch time the video got in its first 24 hours. The report also displays how many subscribers you have lost or gained during that time, and the amount of revenue you earned if the video gets monetized.

YouTube is also providing creators the ability to see how your new video has performed in comparison to your last video, or any other recent video.
