The difference between “I got ya” and “I got you” in American English slang.

“I got ya” (often pronounced as “I gotcha”) is a way to say “I understand”

“I got you” (often pronounced as “I gotchu”) is a way of saying “I understand” OR to say “it’s okay, I’ll protect you or do something for you.”

Example:
“Hey bro, can you drop these groceries off at my brother’s house on your way?”
“I got you.”

    @Tahee20 they can both mean “I understand” but “I got you” can also mean something else depending on the situation.
