What is Shorts?


Shorts is a new way to express yourself in 15 seconds or less. User-generated short videos were born on YouTube, starting with the first upload, a short 18-second video called “Me at the zoo.” As technology advances, creators and artists can now take advantage of the incredible power of smartphones to easily create and publish high-quality content wherever they are in the world. And people can be entertained and informed by bite-sized content in their spare minutes of the day.


Youtube is excited to announce YouTube Shorts, a new short-form video experience right on YouTube for creators and artists who want to shoot short, catchy videos using nothing but their mobile phones.


Youtube Short is an early version of the product, but youtube is releasing it now to bring you - our global community of users. Youtube will continue to add more features and expand to more countries in the coming months.


The team is focused on building its foundation across three main areas:


* A multi-segment camera to string multiple video clips together,

* The option to record with music from an extensive library of songs that will continue to grow,

* Speed controls that give you the flexibility to be creative in your performance,

* And a timer and countdown to easily record, hands-free.


Get discovered: Every month, 2 billion viewers come to YouTube to laugh, learn and connect. Creators have built entire businesses on YouTube, and youtube wants to enable the next generation of mobile creators to grow a community on YouTube with Shorts.


Youtube encourages any mobile creator or artist to upload their existing short videos on YouTube today to start getting discovered.


There’s much more to come, and over the next few weeks and months, Youtube continues to roll out more creation tools and easier ways to watch short videos on YouTube. If you want to learn more about how to create Shorts, check out youtube shorts forum post.
