4. Livestreaming in Vertical Format

Creators can now go live and get discovered right within the Shorts stream thanks to YouTube's experimental mobile-first vertical live experience, which is a feature similar to TikTok Live. Previews of vertical live videos are incorporated into the Shorts feed for viewers to see. Creators may interact live in full-screen mode with a brand-new audience and develop their communities in a fun and cutting-edge way. YouTube claims that this is also a fantastic opportunity for creators who recently joined its Partner Program to be found by users due to new, more lenient eligibility rules.

5. Creation with Suggestion

It is now simpler than ever to get ideas from other Shorts creators. In a new feature, YouTube will automatically surface the audio and effects from the Short that is being remixed for the user. A technology that TikTok already uses allows creators to add a creative spark to their videos by simply tapping the suggested sounds and effects.

6. Add your Favorite Shorts to Playlists

Finally, makers may now save Shorts straight to playlists, ensuring that no amazing effect or concept is lost. Future content creators have a great resource in the capacity to curate and arrange their favorite short films in playlists. Also read: YouTube Shorts Creators to Get a Cut of Ad Revenue
