Google is testing a new feature for YouTube that will take up competition with the now-famous TikTok app.
Google is testing a new feature that lets you record videos in just 15 seconds. There is not much you can say in these seconds, but it should be enough if you want to announce something important or fun. Google has said the following about this feature:
Testing out a way to record multi-segment videos: We're testing out a new way for creators to easily record multiple clips directly in the YouTube mobile app and upload as one video. If you're in this experiment, you'll see an option to 'create a video' in the mobile upload flow. Tap or hold the record button to record your first clip, then tap again or release the button to stop recording that clip.
Repeat these steps until you're done capturing footage up to a maximum length of 15 seconds. If you'd like to upload a longer video, you'll still be able to do so by uploading from your phone gallery instead of recording through the app. We're starting these experiments on mobile (both Android and iOS) with a small group of people while we gather feedback.
