Users asked, and YouTube answered. That’s right; YouTube has made quite a few improvements to its app based on recent user feedback. These improvements should make it easier for users to find the type of content they want when checking out a creator’s channel. These improvements include separate tabs for Shorts, live streams and long-form videos. Let’s take a closer look.

The first new feature on YouTube will be the Shorts Tab. This new tab can be found on all creator’s channels and will feature all the short-form videos and content created. If a user is watching a short from their feed and decides they want to see what other videos the creator has, they can navigate to the channel and immediately be taken to the shorts tab to see similar content.

Channels will also be receiving a live streams tab. Here, users can see all live-stream content from a particular creator. This includes current live streams, scheduled live streams, and archived live streams. You can find this on the creator’s channel by swiping through the tabs to find ‘Live Streams.’ This feature will make it easier for users to stay on top of their favorite live stream creators or easily access previous live streams if they missed them.

The regular videos tab on a channel will continue to include all long-form video content. Users will also no longer see any shorts or live streams in the video content as all of this will be moved to the appropriate new tabs.

This update may seem small, but it’ll make a big difference in how users find the content they enjoy. Not everyone enjoys 10-minute-long videos and prefers quick little bites of content. Now, you don’t have to scroll through numerous videos just to get the type of content you enjoy. You simply navigate to the channel and choose the tab that suits your preferences.

These are not the only new features, as YouTube rolled out Zoom features a while back. These tab features started rolling out on October 27th and should be visible on most devices already. If you don’t see these new tabs on the channels in your version of YouTube, make sure that the app is updated.

Since leaving school I immediately started working and have been involved in many different industries where I learned a wide range of skills. Some of my skills range from marketing to management and even teaching special needs children, particularly those with severe developmental delays. I am a self-proclaimed holiday nut, taking any chance I can get to decorate and celebrate major holidays such as Easter, Halloween and Christmas, often planning these months in advance! I have a wide range of passions that I persue (as often as I can) such as reading, writing, bonsai, crafting, creating natural beauty products, listening to music and playing games (prefered platforms being PC and Xbox).
