YouTube Is Working On A TikTok Competitor Called ‘Shorts
After Facebook Lasso and Instagram Reels, YouTube is now working on its own short-form, user-generated video app — Shorts.
The app will release by the end of year. Shorts will let you create and share a few seconds-long videos to a dedicated feed of similar clips.
The sharing and viewing process will be similar to that of TikTok, and you will also get plenty of music, which the company has already licensed for YouTube Music, to add to the clips.
