YouTube Shorts is now available in the Philippines

On Tuesday, July 13, YouTube announced that its short-form video content offering, YouTube Shorts, was now available in the Philippines.

YouTube Shorts was first announced in September 2020, and it has since expanded to 100 countries globally, including the Philippines, with its most recent growth to 26 new countries. The YouTube Shorts player has achieved 6.5 billion daily views worldwide, and its expansion is expected to help it gain much more.

In the Philippines, YouTube viewers and content creators should now be able to use the YouTube Shorts creation tools on their phones, albeit you’ll have to wait for the update to appear on your device.

Among the features are a multi-segment camera for stringing together several video clips, the ability to record with music, and speed settings options, among others.

Youtube is also working on several new features, like adding text to videos and automatic captioning, among other things.

YouTube’s short-form video platform intends to compete with TikTok in the field, with one advantage being that users will be able to “sample audio not only from other Shorts but also from the billions of videos available on YouTube,” according to the company.

To put it another way, remixing Rick Astley songs with your ridiculous dance is becoming increasingly popular on YouTube.

To aid in discovering YouTube Shorts, the firm added a new section to the YouTube homepage dedicated to this type of content. On mobile, a Shorts tab will be available soon.

YouTube is also sponsoring the creation of unique short-form video content, with the YouTube Shorts Fund, which was unveiled in May, aiming to distribute $100 million to exceptional producers between 2021 and 2022.
