YouTube Announces New Short-Form Videos Called 'YouTube Shorts'

YouTube has a new way to make videos!

The longtime video platform has announced that it is launching a new short-form video experience for users, called YouTube Shorts.

The new experience is launching a beta trial in India over the next few days. They will be “a new way to express yourself in 15 seconds or less.”

Users will be able to create the videos using “editing tools to do things like string multiple video clips together, use speed controls and timers, and add music to your video clips,” according to YouTube.

There will also be a row on the YouTube homepage especially for Shorts and there will be a new watch experience “that lets you easily swipe vertically from one video to the next, plus discover other similar short videos.”

YouTube is just the latest to move forward with a new feature very similar to TikTok. Instagram launched it’s new video feature, Reels, in August.
