You’ve heard of Instagram Reels and TikTok, and you’ve surely heard of YouTube, but have you heard about YouTube Shorts?

According to Google, “YouTube Shorts is a way for anyone to connect with a new audience using just a smartphone and the Shorts camera in the YouTube app. YouTube’s Shorts creation tools makes it easy to create short-form videos that are up to 60 seconds long with our multi-segment camera.”

As of last month, YouTube Shorts is available in over 100 countries as Google’s TikTok and short-form viral video competitor. The company now wants to ramp up Shorts awareness with a global ad campaign “introducing the shorter side of YouTube.”

We’ll continue to monitor the growth of YouTube Shorts.
