The feature resembles the short-form video format pioneered by Snapchat Stories, which has since been adopted by Instagram, Skype, Facebook and Facebook's Messenger app, according to TechCrunch.

YouTube is also integrating features already available on Community for Reels. As for the channel subscribers, they will be able to find past Reels. You would also have to navigate to the creators channel to view them.

In the Community section, creators can share polls, pictures, text, GIFs and other content which are created to let channels feed their fans new content on YouTube itself, instead of other social media platforms in the period between major video uploads.
