As of today, YouTube has begun releasing features similar to Instagram stories for more content producers. According to the Verge website, YouTube stories, which launched on a trial basis last year, are now available to all content producers with more than 10,000 subscribers.
YouTube stories are slightly different from the ones we saw on Instagram, SnapChat or WhatsApp. First of all, the display limit of these stories is no longer 24 hours and can be seen for up to seven days. The second point is that the videos in this section can be viewed by both channel subscribers and non-subscribers.
For easy access to stories, YouTube has a sidebar called Up Next so you can jump to another related video as soon as you finish watching one video. Visitors to any story can also react to it and comment on each, and in front of the channel owner it is possible to respond to them and everyone can see the conversation between the two.
YouTube stories, which were called Reels when they were released, have received mixed reviews from the user community to date. While some content producers have begun to use this feature, others (especially major manufacturers) have been very slow to use it. But perhaps expanding access to this feature for content producers can help them learn more.Source
