What is YouTube channel handle?
Handles are unique and short channel identifiers distinct from channel names and IDs. The handles start with the "@"" symbol, for example, @tunepocket. You can also use the handles to find and interact with other YouTube users.
What is YouTube channel name?
Similar to the handle, a YouTube channel username is the human-readable name chosen by the channel owner. It is part of the channel's URL (for example, https://www.youtube.com/c/tunepocket) and (unlike the channel ID) can be customized. In the past, yotubers would need at least 100 subscribers before they could set up their user name.

While channel handles are user-friendly and easy to remember, they can be changed by the channel owner. On the other hand, the channel ID remains constant, making it a more reliable way to identify and interact with a specific YouTube channel.
