YouTube Will Now Add a Watermark to Shared Shorts

YouTube's TikTok and Instagram Reels partner, Shorts has now acquired a new feature that will result in the addition of a watermark when uploading short videos. This will be another way for the video platform to promote Shorts. 

YouTube shorts will now have a watermark

Whenever a creator uploads a short video from YouTube Studio primarily for the purpose of sharing it on other platforms, there will now be  a watermark on the video. YouTube says it will help others "see that the content you share across multiple platforms can be found on YouTube Shorts." thus helping it expand its user base. 

This feature will be rolled out in the coming weeks and will add watermarks to YouTube short pages downloaded to the desktop. It is confirmed that it will reach mobile users, but that will happen in the coming weeks. 

To get people to watch as many Shorts videos as possible, YouTube also recently implemented a Shorts shelf. This can be found under the Subscriptions tab and will help creators differentiate their YouTube videos from short videos and make it easy for users to discover short videos. 

YouTube has also introduced the ability for creators to watch a long video and turn it into a short video, another way to encourage people to make more shorts and help people watch more short films. 

As the Google-owned video streaming platform is using short-form video, we expect more features to come to us in the near future. We will be sure to provide you with any updates. Stay tuned and in the meantime, share your thoughts on YouTube Watermark Shorts in the comments section below.
