Shorts beta U.S. expansion & important updates for Shorts creators
1
We know many of you have been eagerly waiting to get your hands on the Shorts camera so you can start creating Shorts right from your phone! Over the next several weeks, we're expanding our Shorts beta in the U.S with a new camera and a few updates to how Shorts work on YouTube. 

To access the Shorts camera, open the YouTube Mobile app (make sure you’re using the latest version!) and tap the “+” icon at the bottom of your screen when you open the app. If you see an option to “Create a Short” that means you can start creating Shorts right from the app. 

Don't have access to these new Shorts tools yet? You can still try out Shorts by uploading vertical videos that are 60 seconds or less and including the hashtag #Shorts in the title or description. We’ll be rolling the Shorts camera out to everyone in the US over the course of the next several weeks, so stay tuned! 

With this beta expansion we’re also sharing some important updates to how Shorts works on YouTube.

We’ve been experimenting with a variety of new places where Shorts can be viewed on the platform to further integrate Shorts into your experience on YouTube. We’ll continue to add more places to view Shorts on YouTube over the course of the next few months but wanted to highlight a few of them today.
  • Customize your channel with a new section to highlight your Shorts: When customizing the layout of your channel, you’ll now see an option for “Shorts”. This breaks out Shorts into their own section that allows you to better highlight them on your channel. Over the coming weeks, this section will be automatically added at the bottom of your channel page if you have any vertical videos that are 60 seconds or less uploaded on your channel. If you’d prefer not to have Shorts displayed in their own section of your channel, you can customize your channel layout in Studio. Learn more here.
  • Watch Shorts more easily from your Subs feed on mobile: We’ve shared some information about this previously when we were experimenting with this late last year, but now all viewers can watch Shorts more easily straight from the subscriptions feed on their mobile app. Viewers will now be able to easily identify a Short from a creator they’re subscribed to, tap to watch the Short, then swipe up or down to watch more short videos from all the creators they’re subscribed to.
  • Experiment: New places for Shorts on the mobile app: We’ve previously shared some details about this experiment a few months ago, but now we're continuing our tests with some viewers in the U.S. For those who are in the experiment, you’ll either see a Shorts icon in place of the Explore tab (with the Explore icon moved to the top row), or you’ll see a Shorts icon in place of the Cast icon on the top row of the app (casting can still be done while watching a video). This experiment is only available to some users in the U.S. using the YouTube app on Android and iOS while we gather feedback.
We’re also making some changes to how Shorts work with our existing notification system for uploads and livestreams. 
  • Previously if a viewer had selected to receive “All notifications” when tapping the Notification bell , they would have received a notification for every livestream or upload (including Shorts), up to 3 a day. We’re now changing this so that viewers will only receive personalized Shorts recommendations across all channels they’re subscribed to, and not for every Short that you upload. This means that uploading Shorts to your channel will not contribute to your daily bell notification limits. We’ll be implementing this change over the course of the next few weeks. 
As always, please share your feedback about any of these features with us here or in the comments below!
