YouTube Stories Rolling Out for Creators With Over 10,000 Subscribers
Just about every app ranging from Snapchat to Messenger now has a 'Stories' feature. Today, it's YouTube's turn as YouTube Stories is now rolling out to creators with over 10,000 subscribers. Unlike Instagram and Snapchat, YouTube Stories is aimed at larger online personalities as another tool for interacting with fans.
Standard features include adding text, music filters, “YouTube stickers,” and more. The camera icon used to start a stream on Android and iOS will feature a new “Create Story” option. Like regular videos and live streams, there are user comments with the ability for the community to heart and thumbs up/down. The same video content moderation tools are available here, while creators can reply to a comment in photo or video form, with a preview of that question included. A YouTube Story will last for seven days and appear for subscribers in the Subscriptions tab. They'll also be visible in the Home tab and Up next list. Stories will be rolling out starting today on both Android and iOS for accounts with over 10,000 subscribers.
