- YouTube Shorts will arrive at the Desktop in coming weeks
YouTube is bringing its short-video format section called YouTube Shorts to desktops and tablets. Fortunately for those who prefer watching on bigger screens, Google is bringing the Shorts shelf to YouTube on desktop web browsers and tablets. The company is also introducing a new creation tool — which is suspiciously (but unsurprisingly) similar to one of TikTok’s. The section was previously accessible only to mobile phones and users could not open Shorts videos on platforms like desktops, tablets, and Smart TVs. Now, Google plans to roll out support for desktops and tablets, but it seems like Smart TVs will still not be able to play Shorts clips for now.
The shift is schedule to happen in the next weeks. This is excellent news for tablet and desktop users, as many people prefer to consume material on bigger displays rather than on their smartphones.
Youtube Shorts Implementation on Desktop and Tablets
It remains to be seen how the implementation will be organized in the YouTube interface for desktops and tablets, which is different from that of smartphones, where YouTube Shorts has its own section. It seems likely that desktop users will soon see a dedicated Shorts section too, with all the Shorts clips in one place.
YouTube is also bringing a new feature to its Shorts platform called ‘Cut’. Allowing users to add parts of other users’ videos to your own clip, Cutworks on similar lines to the ‘Stitch’ feature on TikTok. However, users who don’t want to have their clips mixed into others’ videos can simply opt-out of the feature.
The cut is going to arrive first on Apple’s iOS devices, with Android users receiving it later this year.
