FAQ of the AI Coach tool

  1. Message Limit: You may have reached the 30 messages per-hour limit. Please wait a while before trying again.

    If you encounter a message limit warning, it means you have reached the maximum of 30 messages per hour allowed by the AI Coach. This limit is in place to ensure fair usage and availability of the service for all users.

  2. Why is the AI Coach not working properly on my device?

    AI Coach may be affected by active parental controls, VPNs, adblockers, or third-party browser extensions. These can interfere with the functionality of the AI Coach by restricting access or altering how the service interacts with your browser.

  3. Unsupported Questions: AI Coach may not be able to support the query you've asked.

    The AI Coach is designed to handle specific kinds of questions related to YouTube, channel optimization, video performance, and content strategy. Queries outside of these topics may not be processed.


    If you ask AI Coach something unrelated to its intended function, such as “What’s the weather like today?” or “Can you help me with my math homework?”, the AI may not respond because these questions are not within its supported topics.
