YouTube made the announcement as part of an expansion of its Community tools for popular video creators. The new addition will allow creators to upload clips in a "stories" format, which has gotten quite popular with apps like Snapchat and Instagram.
Google-owned YouTube is getting in on the Stories game that was started by Snapchat and adopted by Facebook, Instagram, and more.
Roy Livne, senior product manager at YouTube, said in the blog post that the company plans to expand the feature after experimenting with the new format among a limited group of creators. Not all the creators are receiving YouTube "Reels".
Youtube says the newest feature is a way for creators to express themselves and engage with fans without the need to post a full video. Reels will appear in a dedicated tab on the YouTube channel. Creators can also turn to the Community tab to tease subscribers about an upcoming video so that they might build additional excitement for their offerings. Reels will not disappear after 24 hours and YouTube will let users have multiple Reels, each with their own set of videos. According to YouTube people wants to share stuff on the YouTube without the hassle of following the traditional ways of making a YouTube video. However, according to TechCrunch, to make a Reel, you shoot "a few quick mobile videos of up to 30 seconds each", then you can fancy them up with filters, music, and text, and after that, you can pick a Reel to add them to - whether that be a new one or existing one. But we will update you when we will get more information about this. However, unlike Stories, videos posted on Reels will not come with an expiry date. These accounts will now have the ability to post text, images, polls, GIFs, and host livestreams for their fans. Your most engaged viewers can now see Community posts in the Home feed, whether they're subscribed to your channel or not.
