YouTube has delivered an important update to its audio eraser tool


YouTube has implemented an important update to its eraser tool, helping creators to easily remove copyrighted music without affecting any other audio within a video.

On Wednesday, YouTube CEO Neal Mohan shared the new tool on X, formerly Twitter, writing, “Good news, creators: our updated Erase Song tool helps you easily remove copyright-claimed music from your video (while leaving the rest of your audio intact).”

Mohan posted a video which revealed the company has been testing this tool for a while, and the updated version of the eraser now uses an AI-powered algorithm to detect the copyrighted song without impacting other audio in a clip or having to upload a new video.

YouTube’s support page includes a full how-to for creators looking to use the eraser. There are options for replacing, editing, muting, and removing said audio.
