YouTube tests new video functionality in 15 seconds, as in TikTok
Check out the new functionality that is being tested by the YouTube video platform, the recording of 15-second shorts, just like TikTok.
YouTube recently made it clear that it wants to compete directly with the short video app TikTok. This week the company began testing a feature for its mobile application that allows the user to record 15-second videos. This time determined by the Google platform is the same pattern followed by TikTok and Reels (Scenes), from Instagram.
Users who have access to the new YouTube tool will see an option to “create a video” in the upload options on the smartphone app. After selecting the option, just press the record button and hold for as long as you want to record. It is possible to touch more than once to capture several moments of a scene, to make it easier to separate only the main ones.
The new feature brings with it a weak point for those who wish to record longer videos from smartphones. As there will only be the option to create 15-second videos, the user will have to record the longest video through the phone’s camera app, select the file and then upload instead of using the YouTube app to do everything.
YouTube did not give details about how the new tool works to find out if there are filters, effects, music, AR (augmented reality) or buttons to change the speed of the video. All of these capabilities are present in TikTok and they are what made it what it is today.
According to Google’s video platform, functionality is being tested by a small group of content creators on iOS and Android operating systems. A company spokesman said:
