YouTube announces TikTok-like feature Shorts

YouTube announced on Monday it is launching YouTube Shorts in an apparent effort to compete with popular Chinese app TikTok.

The company noted that an early beta version of the tool, which will let users upload 15-second or shorter videos, launched today in India, a country that banned TikTok citing security concerns.
