How to make YouTube Shorts

 Youtube shorts are here. This is a completely new way of building content. Shorts are in portrait or vertical videos. (Did I say Tiktok!!!)

How to make YouTube Shorts?

Shorts is in beta so not everyone will see the button to create shorts. If you have access to it then it will be available in your YouTube app. Make sure to update your YouTube app to the latest.

If you have access to the Shorts feature

  • Click on the "+" icon. In iOS, it is a video camera icon. "Create icon" for Android users in India has been moved to the middle of the navigation bar.
  • Select Video.
  •  Do you see ‘Create a short video’ then you have access to the Shorts. Yay!!! 
  • Create a video of less than 15 seconds.
  • Welcome to the world of Shorts
If you do not have access to the Shorts feature:
  • Upload your existing portrait or vertical format video of less than 60 seconds and use the hashtag #Shorts in the title or description. There are some reports that to be on the safer side, keep it less than 58 seconds. 
Bhatt Family or family channel got YouTube Shorts channel. Check the channel.
My son Ekagra Bhatt YouTube app did get shorts enabled. Check his channel as well.
