YouTube’s short video answer to TikTok, YouTube Shorts, is currently gradually rolling out to a wide range of countries including the UK and Latin America.
YouTube has announced that its TikTok-esque YouTube Shorts is rolling out into further territories, after a successful beta launch in India and the US. Further expansion begins this week and should be live by the end of June.
There’s further features rolling out along with the geographical growth – audio and video from the whole of YouTube can now be used on Shorts, and viewers can click through to view the original content.
Still in beta mode, currently Shorts isn’t a standalone app but a player that resides inside the YouTube platform.
YouTube Shorts can be up to 60 seconds long, letting users record and share videos with edits like captions, graphics and filters.
Through RouteNote you can earn money when anyone uses your music in a Short. Just like over on TikTok, a Short going viral is a huge opportunity for the artist, as of course every user who watches the Short hears the chosen track. You never know – your music could end up soundtracking the next dance challenge craze.
The full list of countries with Shorts now includes:
Colombia Costa Rica
|Dominican Republic |
Turks and Caicos Islands
