YouTube Shorts is emerging as a big alternative to short video apps like TikTok, Reels, and more. YouTube replaced the Trending section button with the Shorts button on their Android app. YouTube recently introduced a new feature that helps you to create and upload short videos just like TikTok and Instagram Reels. It is now out of beta so, you won’t see the Shorts BETA icon.
