YouTube has now extended its Shorts feature to other regions which include the UK, Canada and Latin America. The Shorts feed and camera will reportedly be launched in batches with a full roll out by June end.

While Shorts is still under beta-testing, YouTube will also be developing new features to provide creators with more options to create content. YouTube will soon be adding more song tracks in partnership with 250 music labels which include: Universal Music Group’s labels and publishing companies, Sony Music Entertainment and Publishing, Warner Music Group and Warner Chappell Music, Believe, Because Music, Merlin, Beggars, Ditto, AEI, The State51, Kobalt.

Moreover, YouTube will soon be allowing creators to export background music from other YouTube videos to add in their videos. If users would like to opt-out from having their content used by other users, they can uncheck the “Allow people to sample this content” option prior to uploading the video, however, Shorts videos cannot uncheck the feature but can delete the video to remove the audio from other Shorts videos. This feature is currently limited to a small number of creators in the U.S and India.
