If one brief video app has a characteristic, everybody else has to have it. That’s the rule. The newest episode on this pattern is delivered to us by YouTube, which launched a characteristic for creators to answer to feedback on their movies with Shorts.
“Invite your viewers to attach with you by way of this new characteristic by answering their questions in your Shorts, taking content material requests, reacting to feedback in your movies, and no matter else you provide you with,” the corporate stated in a post.
This could possibly be fairly helpful for creators who would possibly need to reply to some followers’ feedback on a video as a follow-up. Creating a brief video to take action is simpler and extra casual than making a full video.
Right here’s the way it works:
- For those who’re a creator, head to your video or a Quick and open the remark part.
- Faucet reply on the remark you need to reply to.
- Faucet on the ‘Create a Quick’ button to create a brief video that includes that remark.
The characteristic is at the moment rolling out to all creators on iOS with YouTube engaged on bringing it to Android quickly. The corporate can be testing a perform to inform followers if a creator options their remark in a Quick.
Earlier this 12 months, YouTube stated 1.5 billion logged-in customers are watching YouTube Shorts every month. “Options like “reply to a remark with a Quick” will give creators extra prompts to make extra content material. This manner, followers may even get extra content material to eat and it’ll doubtlessly enhance YouTube’s total viewership.”
YouTube is late to the “reply with a brief video” social gathering. TikTok launched this characteristic back in 2020 and Instagram launched its own version called “Reels Visual Replies” final December
