A new feature that will let you record 15-second videos is the new experiment of the video streaming Company. YouTube is letting some people record short videos with this feature called multi-segment videos. It is rolling out the test to some users on both iOS and Android, it said earlier this week.
This feature will let creators record multiple clips easily directly from the mobile app, YouTube’s announcement suggested. The idea is to record 15-second clips that will eventually merge into one video.
If you want to upload longer videos at one go, you’ll have to upload them directly from the phone’s gallery, YouTube added. This is a strategy shift from the company to try and coax creators into uploading shorter videos through YouTube rather than TikTok.
However, the appeal of TikTok or any other modern short video app isn’t just the duration of the video content. The AR and editing tools with effects in those apps birth different formats that trend on social media.
There are also active communities and cults that users can be a part of. So, YouTube will have to work on it to get more people using this feature regularly. Otherwise, it may end up forgotten like the YouTube Stories feature.
