You will soon have access to incredible features on the YouTube video-streaming service. Users will be able to modify lengthy videos with the aid of this function. YouTube is planning to release an editing tool that will allow users to cut large videos into shorter ones. Both Android and iOS users will be able to use this tool. This new function on YouTube is called Edit into a Short.

What you will get from this?

When announcing this feature, YouTube claimed that users may utilise it to cut their lengthy YouTube videos down to 60 seconds from their device. Users can also add text, filters, films, and photographs from their phone gallery to shorts using this tool. YouTube claims that this update would enable users to repurpose their old material, alter their video-watching environment, and save time.

A YouTube post introducing the feature states that the completed Short will link to the complete video it was taken from. As YouTube continues to try different monetization strategies for the feature, this might help make Shorts the perfect advertising vehicle for the creator’s longer material. If a user enjoys a Short created with this technique, they won’t need to go to the creator’s channel and watch the whole thing.

Users can also record videos using this feature, according to YouTube. Users, however, are limited to editing their own videos in shorts.
