Over the past year, we’ve been testing YouTube’s version of the popular stories format, which is designed specifically for YouTube creators sharing with their audience. During this time, we’ve added new features based on popular feedback, expanded how and where stories show up on YouTube, and most recently announced that this format is available to all eligible creators with 10k+ subscribers. If your channel becomes eligible for stories, you’ll be notified in the YouTube app.
For those interested in creating or viewing YouTube stories, check out more details below!
- Eligible channels can create stories on both Android and iOS–just open the YouTube mobile app, tap on the video camera icon, and select Create Story! Once posted, stories are available in the mobile app for 7 days.
- You can always find YouTube stories on the creator’s channel via the Stories tab and if you’re subscribed to the channel, you may also see stories in the Subscriptions tab. Even if you’re not subscribed, you may see stories on Home and in the “Stories for you” section in the Up Next list below videos. If you’re not subscribed to the channel, you can tap the subscribe button directly from the YouTube Story!
- More tips directly from the Product Manager via this Creator Insider Video.
New features we’ve added to YouTube stories this past year!
- Stories include both videos and photos! Creators can tap the video camera button to take a photo or hold the button to take a video. Another option is to upload a video or photo from your phone’s gallery.
- We’ve added more fun creation tools for creators including location stickers and more camera filters and effects. Creators will also find YouTube-y stickers, music, auto-trimming and cropping and more! If you have any feature requests, please submit via the feedback tool.
- When viewing a story, you can now publicly comment and view other comments, as well as give a heart, thumbs up or thumbs down. Creators can also highlight viewer comments in their next story with the “Reply in Story” feature. This is a great way to share or respond to the comment with a photo or video for the entire community to see.
We’ll continue to update this post with any other news about YouTube Stories!
