    YouTube Announces 'SHORTS' For TikTok Alternative

    Shorts Will Be Featured On The YouTube Home Screen

    YouTube has always been a place to be entertained from your favorite dance trends to highly replayable short videos. Over the years, more than two billion people have shared their voice and found an audience on YouTube. 

    To attract more audience, YouTube announced the launch of an early beta of 'YouTube Shorts', a new video experience that lets you create short videos rights from the YouTube mobile app.

    Shorts is a new short-form video experience for creators and artists who want to shoot short, catchy videos by using  their mobile phones. In Shorts you can make 15 seconds or less videos to express yourself. You can also see some new tools for creators and artists including:

    • A multi-segment camera to string multiple video clips together.
    • The option to record with music from a large library of songs that will continue to grow.
    • Speed controls that give you the flexibility to be creative in your performance.
    • And a timer and countdown to easily record, hands-free.


    YouTube Team Wrote in a blog post, We’re starting off by launching an early beta of YouTube Shorts in India, this includes a new camera and a handful of editing tools that will be rolling out over the course of the next few weeks. We'll continue to add more features over the coming months and we look forward to hearing your feedback about these features. 


    If you have access to the Shorts camera, you’ll be able to start creating short vertical videos right on the YouTube app! To check if you have access and start creating your first Short, hit the "+" icon (or the video camera icon on iOS) and select ‘Video’.

    If you see ‘Create a short video’ then you have access to the Shorts camera, which will allow you to use editing tools to do things like string multiple video clips together, use speed controls and timers, and add music to your video clips.

    If you don't have access to the Shorts camera yet, you can still upload your existing vertical videos that are less than 60 seconds using the hashtag #Shorts in the title or description.

    Moreover, for users on Android and located in India, you’ll see the “Create” icon has moved to the middle of the bottom navigation bar to make it easier for you to create videos right from the YouTube app.
