YouTube officially announces TikTok competitor and announced its new feature YouTube Shorts

 

YouTube has finally announced TikTok is its competitor by launching its new feature YouTube Shorts, which looks and sounds a lot like the viral video app TikTok.

According to YouTube, Shorts is a “new way to express yourself in 15 seconds or less.” Users can use it to create and watch short-form videos right on the YouTube platform.

YouTube Shorts will deliver a number of tools to allow creators to make videos on their mobile devices. It will consist of a “multi-segment camera” that can combine separate clips, as well as speed controls and a timer and countdown so creators can create videos without needing to hold the phone. The library of music is also present you can use to record with.

Many of you might have noticed a new section on your YouTube homepage called Shorts. This row of videos will include all of your favorite creators’ YouTube Shorts content. Just like with TikTok, you’ll be able to easily swipe up or down in order to move to the next video. The platform will also recommend you its new Shorts content.

Word of YouTube Shorts first leaked in April this year. In YouTube’s official announcement, the company said it will first roll YouTube Shorts out in India. This makes perfect sense when you consider that TikTok was banned in that country in late June.
