YouTube adds new generative AI for Shorts

Share the joy


The first generative AI feature from YouTube is now available for YouTube Shorts. The “Boom” effect, which is a new addition to the AI feature, will transform users into colorful topiaries.

Even though the feature appears a little strange, creators will still find it interesting.

In order to draw even more viewers to Shorts, YouTube is hoping that this is the kind of content users will want to share with their friends.

YouTube released several creation tools for Shorts. The company has now followed up on that with the launch of some more creation tools.


This feature allows users to record short-term videos in a split-screen format with other Shorts or regular clips. To create a Collab video as a Short creator, simply hit Remix and then choose the new format.

YouTube is also adding a tool that lets users quickly build off of and remix existing Shorts. All a creator needs to do is tap the Remix button and select “use sound” in the Shorts player to automatically surface the audio and effect used in the clip they recently watched. Creators can then apply both sound and effects to their own posts.

A new recomposition tool will soon be tested by YouTube to make it simpler to turn horizontal videos into vertical Shorts. After selecting a video to remix, the tool will give creators a new way to modify the arrangement, zoom, and crop of the segment they want to use. They will be able to use the new split-screen effect for the video they are recomposing in an effortless manner as a result. 

 In April, YouTube started rolling out a video “remixing” feature for YouTube Shorts. Remixing is one of the popular features that attracts heavy usage on TikTok, and it is a smart move by YouTube. Remixing will allow YouTube Shorts creators to easily cut a five-second video clip out of any YouTube video.

Additionally, shorts can be taken from other shorts and added to the creator’s original short video. Those who are familiar with TikTok love the feature. Similar functionality, known as stitching, is available on TikTok and has aided in the production of the platform’s popular reaction videos.

Simply tap “Create” on any supported YouTube video while utilizing the YouTube mobile app to get started. Next, select “Cut” from the list of available remix options. Choose the video segment that you want to shave off.
