YouTube developed Shorts in 2020 as a strong competitor to TikTok, which was quickly booming at the time. Within the YouTube app, users could produce short video recordings of up to 60 seconds in length called YouTube Shorts. Automatically captions, the ability to add text to particular areas of the video, rudimentary filters, and colour were among the useful features. However, according to the most recent report, YouTube Shorts will soon acquire a voiceover option similar to TikTok.
The YouTube app will now make use of a new function created by the ByteDance network. It looks that changing the voiceover will soon be possible without the use of a third-party video editing programme.
XDA-Developers found evidence of this in the code of the app’s beta version. YouTube is adding a special button that lets you record a track and overlay it quickly before publishing it.
You can currently only add sounds from YouTube’s collection to Shorts using the YouTube app for Android. If you wish to add a bespoke audio clip, you’ll need to record it separately and then use a third-party video editor to add it to the video.
