YouTube Shorts short video service now available to all US users

Google continues to promote Shorts on YouTube, which is positioning itself as a competitor to TikTok. As part of the next step in this direction, it became available to all content authors in the United States. The service was previously successfully launched in India and tested in the US with a limited number of users.

The larger launch of Shorts means that a dedicated section has appeared in YouTube’s proprietary mobile application, where users will be able to view and publish short videos. To flip through the rollers, just swipe your fingers up or down the screen.

As for the innovations, first of all it is worth noting the emergence of the possibility of creating videos up to 60 seconds in length, whereas before the duration of videos was limited to 15 seconds. A tool for adding subtitles also appears, and they can be created by the service automatically or uploaded by the author of the video independently. Along with this, the developers have added new filters and effects that can be applied during video recording and editing.

As for the Shorts section itself, in the YouTube mobile app for Android and iOS, it is located in the bottom panel, which causes the Navigator section to move to the upper left of the workspace, which may not please all users.

According to reports, the new Shorts section will be available to all US users of the YouTube platform shortly. When the innovation will appear in other countries is still unknown.
