Youtube Shorts is a new short-form video experience like tik tok for those who want to shoot short videos using their mobile phones. YouTube Shorts that allows you to share 15 second videos, was launched by Google on Tuesday.
Over the next few days YouTube is going to launching an early beta of Shorts with a handful of new creation tools to test this out. Now they have released an early version of the product to some of the creators.
Youtube is looking to saw what you do with Shorts and look forward to empowering a new generation of mobile creators and artists on the world’s largest video platform.
The Create button has been moved to the bottom bar of navigation for Android users in India, the post noted, and this is how you can create shorts. According to the post, to check if you have access you can tap the “+” icon then select Video. If you see Create a short video then you have access to the Shorts camera, which has features like stringing multiple video clips, speed controls, times, and adding music to clips.
People who don’t have access to the Shorts camera can still upload vertical videos that are under 60 seconds long, with the hashtag #shorts in the title or description, and these would still be picked up to be highlighted on the YouTube homepage.
