YouTube has announced the US launch of a beta version of its YouTube Shorts service, first unveiled last year to rival the popular Chinese video-sharing app TikTok. In a blog post, YouTube said its short-form video platform enables creators to record, edit and share videos that are 60 seconds or less in length. It added that the YouTube Shorts player has already surpassed 6.5 billion daily views globally around 6 months after its introduction as a beta in countries such as India.
