How the Snapchat Stories-like tool works — YouTube Reels explained


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 says the newest feature is a way for creators to express themselves and engage with fans without the need to post a full video.

YouTube, the Google-owned video service with 1.5 billion monthly visitors, is testings "Reels" for content creators who have more than 10,000 subscribers on the platform, per a company blog post. They are now in a beta-testing phase. Most significant divergence from the other stories features is that the Reels would not be disappearing after some set time or after twenty-four hours. 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.
