Back in September, YouTube announced that it is rolling out its own TikTok-like service — called Shorts — in India in a beta stage. Almost four months since this announcement and in this short time span, it appears that the service is becoming quite popular for users in India.
“More people are creating content on their phones, which is why we’re investing to give creators more video editing tools. We’re now beta testing YouTube Shorts in India and we’re excited to help the next generation of mobile creators tell their stories by lowering the barriers to entry. So far, videos in our new Shorts player – which helps people around the world watch short videos on YouTube – are receiving an impressive 3.5 billion daily views,” said Susan Wojcicki, YouTube CEO.
If you are not sure on how to go about creating them then this is what you need to do:
