YouTube is working on a TikTok competitor.

April 2, 2020


The app is called Shorts and has many of the same features as TikTok.

YouTube is reportedly working on an app that will directly compete with TikTok. It is said that the video giant’s latest project is called Shorts. It will enable users to upload short-form content in story format, just like on TikTok. Shorts has one strong advantage over TikTok. Seeing as YouTube Music can be integrated with the new app, users will be able to add licensed media to their videos. Short-form video has become the new craze, thanks to TikTok, which saw a 125% growth in the last two years and nearly 842 million first-time downloads in the last year.
