YouTube tests a feature to create short TikTok-style videos

YouTube is testing a new feature that reminds us of the dynamics of TikTok and its commitment to short videos. This feature will give users a new tool to create videos of a few seconds from music videos.

YouTube allows creating 15-second videos

YouTube wants to give users an option to create 15-second videos from a music video. At the moment, this feature is only available in India, but some users have already let us see how it works.

They just need to look for the “Create” button on certain music videos for YouTube to allow them to use the music as the background for their video. Once they click “Create”, YouTube opens the mobile camera for the user to record themselves for 15 seconds using the music from the video clip.

Once you finish recording, you can move on to editing the video using some options provided by YouTube. For example, he can opt for other music from a catalog or change the chosen fragment or add text. And of course, you can then publish it to your YouTube channel with the same options as a normal video. So you can choose whether the video will be public or private, add a title, and so on.

And if you are still undecided, you can simply save it to your mobile gallery and upload it later. On the other hand, there is also the possibility of dispensing with the YouTube application to record these mini videos. The user can record it on his mobile independently and then upload it to YouTube. The only requirement is that it be 15 seconds long.

At the moment, it seems to be a feature that is in a testing period, so we don’t yet know what YouTube’s plans are. Perhaps it is trying its luck in India, considering that TikTok is banned in that market, or it may be a dynamic that it plans to implement worldwide.
