Watch YouTube Shorts

YouTube Shorts are short-form vertical videos that give you endless opportunities to discover new and interesting content. Each Short is 60 seconds or less, so you’re not too far from what’s next.

The YouTube Shorts player allows you to watch and interact with a never-ending stream of videos in the Shorts Feed.
