YouTube Stories

YouTube has announced that it is rolling out YouTube Stories to all eligible creators with 10K+ subscribers. You can add text, music, filters, YouTube stickers, and more to make your story uniquely you.  To create a story, just open the YouTube mobile app, tap on the video camera icon, and select “Create Story.”

The company is also including the ability to add comments to Stories, so the entire community can be a part of the conversation. Subscribers can comment, thumbs up and thumbs down comments, and you can heart comments. All of the comment moderation tools that are available on video uploads will also be available on Stories. You can now also respond directly with a photo or video for the entire community to see.

Once posted, Stories are available in the mobile app for 7 days so that subscribers have a chance to see it. Stories may show up to both subscribers on the Subscriptions tab and non-subscribers on Home and in the Up Next list below videos.
