YouTube has added TikTok-like features!
In recent years, TikTok, with its short and vertical videos, has managed to influence many applications. One of them, YouTube, integrated short and vertical videos with the “Shorts” feature. However, the new features that emerged today indicate that YouTube is increasingly becoming like TikTok.
The first of the features added by YouTube mainly concerns users who create YouTube Shorts videos. With the new feature, users will be able to use the effects or sounds they see while watching Shorts videos on YouTube. As known, this feature is also available on TikTok and Instagram.
Another feature offered by the platform is called “Collab,” which is similar to TikTok’s “Duet” feature. With this feature, users can place two videos side by side. According to the company’s announcement, this feature will have multiple video merging options and effects.
YouTube has also introduced another feature, which is a preview option. Users can now see previews related to live streams in the Shorts section. Additionally, access to paid chat and join features will be available from this section as well.
These features will gradually reach users within a few months. In addition to all of these, several new tools have also been provided for users who want to create shorts videos on YouTube. With these tools, processes like trimming and zooming in on videos become easier.
