Similar to TikTok, YouTube Shorts will let people make 15-second videos that can be set to music. Music is available via an “in-product music picker feature,”. The picker currently has 100,000s of tracks, and they are working with music artists, labels, and publishers to make more of their content available to continue expanding our catalog.

The video platform is going to try to get as many people as possible to use its new YouTube Shorts feature, and that includes new “create” icon spots that will appear prominently in the app. The “create” icon rolled out with the Shorts beta on Android, with plans to bring the icon to iOS devices soon. There is currently no estimate for when Shorts may appear in other countries, including here in Uganda.
