Facebook is also working on a similar concept which they have named “Lasso“. For now, Users are seeing Shorts inside the YouTube app but differently. Some people saw it under Watch History and video suggestions while some people found it alongside Stories.

YouTube will also use its catalog of licensed music to allow users to make videos using these soundtracks. YouTube Shorts is likely yo be launched for all users by the end of 2020.
