Turn YouTube Shorts Comments Into YouTube Shorts
As per the YouTube Team’s Support Page, out of the many experimental features that the platform is testing, the ability to create short videos out of the comment on other short videos is one of them. Based on what we could gather, with this feature, you will be able to take a comment from any YouTube Shorts video that you are watching and create an entirely new YouTube Shorts video out of it. YouTube is officially calling this feature “viewer-created Shorts featuring comments.”
Only a small number of iOS and Android users currently have access to this feature. The creators, though, might not appreciate this feature. To begin with, producers won’t have any influence over which comments users decide to turn into videos. Also, when a new video is created, neither the creator nor the author of the comment will be notified. This keeps both the commenter and the creator in the dark. The only way a creator can get out of this mess is to fully turn off comments on their videos.
Now, if you, as a user, choose to turn a Shorts comment into a little video, the result will show up both on your channel’s main page and in the Shorts section. But, keep in mind that your made video will only have a limited audience since it will only be available to a select group of testers on Android and iOS.
Yet, a release date for the general public is still unknown. It’s also crucial to remember that not all experimental features are implemented. Hence, when this functionality is made available to the public, we are interested to see how it will work. Comment below with your opinions on this new feature in the interim.
