YouTube introduces new features on Shopify, e-commerce and shorts
San Francisco: Readers have read on these same pages how YouTube is rolling out new features every month, if not every week. Popular e-commerce website Shopify and YouTube have partnered in this regard, while the facility to optimize shorts has also been offered along with more e-commerce options.
It will now be possible to have a YouTube link on the Shopify website and similarly a Shopify link will be added to the YouTube video enabling two-way sharing. Thus, thanks to video, live streaming and store buttons, users will be able to go directly from YouTube to Shopify and make purchases from there.
The second feature is for shorts, which introduces new video creation options and extends Short Drafts to iOS. The ‘Cut’ option in this allows the YouTuber to cut the video from one to five seconds which can be instantly posted as a short clip.
Cut option has been added to the create button where touching the three dots brings up the cut option. The original link of the cut full video can also be included in it, however monetization of this feature is not possible at present, but soon it will be possible to earn money from it.
Another important option is short drafts which you can save more than one draft while creating a short video. It’s made faster and easier by YouTube, but the draft option is currently only available on iOS.
