The engagement-driven channel TikTok inspires Youtube to try short vertical videos as a new format. Youtube Shorts are now available for all users in India and USA. Read more about the new format in this article.

TikTok has aroused incredible commitment over the past year, which means that more channels want to hook up with short vertical videos; Instagram with Reels as an example. Now Youtube is also launching its TikTok copycat: Shorts.

The feature has been available for a while in India and has become very popular. Shorts was beta-tested by a small group of users in the US in March and Youtube chooses to open up it now to all creators in the country. It has been speculated that the format will also be opened up to global users in the coming weeks.

The launch of “Youtube Shorts” in the US was made public in Youtube’s latest news update on the channel “Creators Insider”, which was released on May 4th, 2021, along with a few more features.

Shorts initially had a limit of 15 seconds and have now been extended to 60 seconds. The format is exciting for all the users and should make creators want to think in other paths in their content. Youtube is also investigating the possibilities of how to make money in the long run in the format.
