YouTube is bringing Shorts to TV screens

YouTube Shorts TV

YouTube Shorts are already popular. The company recently confirmed that Shorts have 1.5 billion users who are watching 30 billion videos a month. Now that the company has confirmed Shorts monetization, creators are actively uploading Shorts. So, the next step was to get more people watching Shorts.

Shorts are vertical videos that come with an endless vertical scroll interface. Watching vertical videos on a smartphone is fun, but what about watching it on a wide screen like TV? YouTube is now bringing Shorts to its TV app.

Shorts to TV screens

“Today YouTube Shorts launches on TV. We’ll take a look at the design process of expanding Shorts to this new surface, taking a deep dive on what it takes to bring mobile-first video formats to your TV screen,” says YouTube.

YouTube also says that making a UI optimized for widescreen was not easy. The company wanted to preserve the essence of Shorts on wide screens. So, they worked on three different design concepts and took feedbacks to finalize the design.
