Quora News: In September last year, YouTube added tick-tock-like short videos to its app, which was first introduced in India and launched in the US in early 2021.
Based on a copy of TikTok, this feature was named YouTube Shorts and now this feature has been introduced in 100 countries of the world including Pakistan.
YouTube shorts videos can be viewed by anyone around the world, but so far only people from certain countries have been able to upload videos to it.
But now the tools to create and upload short videos are available to users in hundreds of countries, ie it is possible in Pakistan.
It also means that you will now have more and more short clips on this platform.
Videos of 15 seconds or less can be created and uploaded to YouTube Shorts with the new Creator tools.
This is a very similar feature to TikTok, which includes speed controls, a timer, and a countdown feature.
Music will also be added to these short videos, and there is a huge library of songs on YouTube that will grow over time, according to the company.
In addition, the multi-segment camera will help users to combine multiple video clips into a short video.
Such tools are commonly used in TikTok video recording.
The purpose of YouTube Shorts is to maintain the supremacy of Google’s video-sharing site by reducing the popularity of TikTok.
Currently, YouTube shorts are still available in beta in most countries in the United States.
Keep in mind that after the popularity of TikTok, its short video feature is being added in all social media apps.
First of all, Instagram introduced a new section called Rails, while Snapchat has done the same.
In December 2020, Google began testing a new feature in search engines, which would allow users to watch Instagram and TickTack videos directly on Google instead of the app.
That is, clicking on these videos will open the web version instead of the app, because Google thinks that people may get lost in the app.
With this new method, Google will be able to keep users on its search badges and give them access to viral videos.
