YouTube is beta-testing its Shorts feature to create brief videos directly from the app as it hopes to compete with the likes of TikTok, Snapchat, and Facebook and Instagram Stories.

Using your smartphone’s camera, you can record brief videos and upload them immediately. The default length is 15 seconds and you can add more time in the app, up to a minute.

The YouTube Shorts feature is now available in more than 100 countries including the US and Canada. Users can find these specific videos by tapping Shorts at the bottom of the YouTube app, on the YouTube homepage, or on their channel page.
