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.

TikTok was the second most downloaded (non-gaming) app worldwide in 2019, across Google Play Store and Apple App Store, after WhatsApp

Facebook launched Lasso in November 2019 and it allows users to upload up to 15-second long videos and overlay them with popular songs The same month, Instagram had launched Reels in Brazil. It allows users to upload — take a wild guess — up to 15-second long videos, set to music, which users can feature as Stories.
