TikTok rival YouTube Shorts now officially launched in the Netherlands
YouTube Shorts is officially available in the Netherlands from today. YouTube users can create and share short videos with their smartphones using the TikTok-like feature.
YouTube announced this morning that YouTube Shorts has now also been launched in the Netherlands. It was already possible to watch the Shorts videos in the Netherlands in recent months, but making Shorts from smartphones was not yet possible. As of today, the Shorts videos can also be created and shared from telephones in the Netherlands. The videos can be up to 1 minute in length.
YouTube Shorts was announced in September 2020 and was available in 26 countries to date. As of this week, the feature can be used in 100 countries, YouTube says. The rollout for all Dutch users starts today and should be completed on Wednesday.
