YouTube announced the rollout of Shorts
Shorts, a new short-form video experience for users who want to shoot short, catchy videos with their mobile phones, an equivalent of TikTok and Instagram Reels, letting creators and artists express themselves in 15 seconds or less with a range of creation tools.
YouTube takes this opportunity to announce other new features such as an update of the chapter tool, support for emerging video formats, and new tools for YouTube Kids.
Launched in India in September 2020, Shorts has quickly established itself and won over a large audience. Indeed, since the beginning of December, the number of users has tripled, and the Shorts reader records more than 3.5 billion views per day throughout the world.
YouTube decided to make its beta version of Shorts available for the United States in the coming weeks (March 2021) so that more creators can test it.
You can also use various creative features, including:
- Music: Choose songs that are free to use

- Timer: Setting the countdown to record hands-free and the Stop point to automatically stop recording.
