Since July 14, users in Nigeria and other parts of the world will be able to access the new YouTube shorts as YouTube announced the launch of the beta version of YouTube Shorts in Nigeria.

According to YouTube, users can also sample audio from not only other short films but also from videos on YouTube, providing a new playing field for content creators like never before. This means that users can change the design of the content they like to watch and share it on the same YouTube platform and have access to a new audience, be it to remix their favorite jokes, try out the trending recipe from a YouTuber or act out comic skits. Creators are in control and can opt-out if they don't want their long video remixed.

Additionally, as the product expands worldwide, YouTube is also ushering in some new features to all new and existing markets, such as: For example, adding text to specific parts of a video, automatically adding subtitles to short films, recording up to 60 seconds with the Shorts camera, adding clips from the phone gallery, and adding footage captured with the Shorts camera, are basic Add color filters and others.

According to Todd Sherman, YouTube's Global Short Film Product Manager, making short films should be fun and easy. "As we continue to develop short films with our creators and artists, we will add more features for users to try," he added.

“When it comes to music, artists and creators have an immense library of songs from over 250 labels to use in their shorts.

"Helping people find shorts, enjoy them, and discover creators is also an important part of the product experience."

That's why, even before the Authoring Tools announcement, we added a line on the YouTube homepage dedicated to shorts, introduced a new viewing experience that lets you swipe vertically from one video to the next, and added a tab of shorts on mobile. this makes it easier for users to view shorts with one touch.

“To date, the YouTube shorts player has exceeded 6,500 million visits per day worldwide". He added that the shorts would be built into the YouTube experience that users already know and love.

"YouTube has helped a generation of YouTubers transform their creativity into businesses and become the next generation media companies. In the past three years, we've paid more than $ 30 billion to YouTubers, artists and corporations".

"Since shorts became a new way of viewing and creating on YouTube, the company has explored various ways to monetize short films and reward creators for their content, including the recently announced YouTube Shorts Fund, a $ 100 million fund. Dollars that will be distributed throughout the course".

"We know it will take some time to get it right and we're just getting started. We can't wait for you to try out shorts and help us create a great short video experience right on YouTube" said Sherman.
