YouTube Unveils Expanded Collection Of Creation Tools For Its Shorts Video App

The competition in the social media world is getting tougher than most of us can imagine. We’ve got apps like TikTok and Instagram taking the lead but if you think YouTube would just sit back and watch, you’re mistaken.

The popular video-sharing app is rolling out an expanded collection of exclusive tools that are designed for creating content on the Shorts App. The company was seen giving a sneak peek of what creators can expect including tools for remixes, effects, live streaming, and the inclusion of stickers among so many others.

The whole idea is to bring out the right kind of inspiration for creating more content on the platform’s most successful venture called Shorts. And this is designed to be another vertical live endeavor that would assist with live experiences so the right creators are found on the main feed outlined for Shorts.

The company mentioned today how the stats for Shorts delineate its massive success where more than two billion people are logged in every month and prompted to roll out new tools and enhance the entire Shorts offering of creators.

One main tool that would be arriving as early as now is dubbed Collab. This is designed for creators to produce Shorts in a format called side by side. As the name explains, it joins shorts with regular videos. Other than that, you’ll be able to use Green Screen which makes use of YouTube content in the background of another Short so it functions as a remixing offering.

The creator can avail another cool tool called Cut that enables snipping short clips from the app so that it remixes into one of their own. Collab is your go-to for side-to-side formatting options so that split screen begins and it’s up for grabs from another similar Remix rollout for videos.

We’ll be seeing the new Collab tool get launched for iOS viewers first and shortly after that, Android users would be able to benefit from it.

In other news, the app is rolling out stickers that users can make use of for Q&A sessions where creators open the forum for the audience and start asking them questions. The responses given by audience members take place in the comments section, which is closely followed up by the likes of Short Videos that continue with the chat. As you can tell, it’s quite similar to the workings of TikTok.

As far as live creators are concerned, the app would be experiencing a feature where users can insert the latest version of Live Videos for Shorts, very much like that seen on TikTok.

If you’re a part of the experimental group, you’ll benefit from early previews of Live combined with Shorts while scrolling. So as you can tell, since the app has already reduced the requirements of its creator monetization program, this would be a great way to earn more funds.

Furthermore, YouTube is going to soon launch more tools that are designed to inspire people to get more creative. One of the latest features on this front is combining audio with video so that it mixes in an automated manner. Hence, people can jump on the trend’s bandwagon with ease this way.

All you need to do is press the button for Remix and select Sound. The effect of the audio’s time stamp taken from your content would be amalgamated in a brilliant manner.

Another option is to save Shorts on the YouTube app’s playlists and that may serve as the right way to produce videos entailing the right effect that you might like to use in the future for your shorts content.
