Creators may now add voiceover to YouTube Shorts!
According to YouTube:
“Add another layer of creative expression to your Shorts by narrating what happens in your content (think: instructions, explanations, reactions, funny comments, or even adding your own new sounds and beyond)”
1.5 billion individuals, or 75% of YouTube’s audience, currently frequently watch Shorts. Given this and the trend towards shorter video content, producers and companies should explore how Shorts may fit into their strategy and boost their YouTube profile.
YouTube is pushing short-form videos. YouTube has been trying to introduce more Shorts onto discovery surfaces to promote its shorter videos. YouTube is adding additional revenue possibilities for Shorts in hopes that this would attract more of the best artists in the sector, making YouTube the premier destination for such, helping it maintain its online video leadership.
After recording Shorts, add voiceover by using these directions:
- Tap the camera’s checkmark button.
- Press voiceover
- Move the playhead to where you want your voiceover to begin.
- To start and stop recording, press the red record button (you can also hold down the record button while recording and lift up to stop recording)
- Tap undo to remove your last voiceover recording or redo to restore it.
- Adjust music, video, and voiceover volume with the volume panel.
YouTube’s iOS Shorts app now has voiceover and is made available on 27 September 2022. Android availability still isn’t mentioned.
Implications for Marketers:
Strategically, shorts may be useful. With new creative tools released every week, there are many methods to build Shorts that may boost your content’s appeal. Voiceover might add another aspect to your approach.
