The feature is available to use for creators with over 10k subscribers.
Recently, YouTube have released their new YouTube Stories Feature on their mobile app. This will allow creators to share short videos to allow them to connect with their audience on the go.
The feature will be available to creators with over 10,000 subscribers. Stories will be available for seven days after upload and can be viewed from a stories tab available at the top of viewers subscription boxes or the ‘Up Next’ bar next to creators’ videos. Viewers will, also, be able to view the stories of creators they aren’t subscribed too.
Viewers will be able to interact with stories, giving thumbs up and down ratings, asking questions or commenting on stories. Creators can then directly interact with these responses, which will be viewable for anyone watching the story. The feature was originally available to a select few creators, including FashionbyAlly, who created a video showing how the stories feature worked.
Upon release, there has been a lot of negative feedback towards the new feature. Across a variety of social platforms, creators and viewers have begun to share their thoughts.
