YouTube reveals livestreaming shorts!

New TikTok like features are coming to YouTube shorts!

Vertical and mobile based shorts are coming to YouTube and it's over 2 billion shorts creators and users!

As well as bringing this option to YouTube shorts, extending it's reach of multiplatform dominance, they are also bringing in more TikTok like settings to bridge the gap between the two giants.

Featured in a blog written by Sarah Ali, Senior Director of Shorts, YouTube is now offering a host of new content creation tools, including Collabs - which will work similarly to TikTok's Stitch feature.

Along with this key new option, another notable out of the 6 creator settings added to YouTube shorts, is the development of YouTube remixes to create short content from your horizontal YouTube videos. There will be more revealed on this in the coming weeks direct from YouTube.


Between the rise of new platform Kick - you can see more Kick specific short content on our social channels - and now YouTube taking Tiktok on with their own similar features, it's a great time to branch out as a creator.
