YouTube Rolls Out Bite-Size “Clips” a New Video Sharing Feature in Beta

The Google-owned YouTube is launching a new short-form video sharing feature called “Clips” in its beta version. With the roll-out of this new feature, creators will be able to clip out, give a title and share tiny 5 to 60 seconds long clips from an existing YouTube live stream or video.

Undoubtedly, this new feature will be a great addition to the platform. These short clips will act as teasers for long-form content writing, which sounds pretty good for creating buzz around your content or generating interest or excitement in the minds of your audience.

YouTube has made this feature available in its beta version as of now since it is in its testing phase and is only accessible to a select group of gaming channels currently. Individuals using a desktop or Android device can only view this feature for the time being until it is fully developed. This means it is not available for iOS users at the moment but is expected to go public very soon.

While users can use this feature on various types of videos, it is not available for use on children’s content, live broadcasts that are more than 8 hours long, premieres while they’re still “live,” and content that has either been removed, set to private or goes against YouTube community guidelines.

Clips will allow creators to share select chunks of videos or Live YouTube videos, making it even more convenient for the audience to get an idea of what the video is all about.

If you happen to be one of those creators who have managed to get their hands on this new feature, you can follow these steps to start sharing tiny video clips right away.
