YouTube Expands Video Editing Options

YouTube has significantly expanded creative capabilities for mobile users with its new Create app, providing streamlined access to features that help simplify the video editing process directly on Android devices. The free video editing tool offers a suite of functions designed to make formulating more complex videos easier.

Create includes audio cleanup tools that allow users to remove unwanted background noises that could interfere with the listening experience. Auto-generated captions are also available in several languages, including English, Hindi and Spanish, which helps make videos more accessible to global audiences. The app provides filters, effects and transitions that allow for basic yet powerful editing, with all options presented together on a single screen without needing to toggle between multiple menus.

Creators can access royalty-free music and sound effects from directly within Create, saving them the extra work of searching externally for copyright-free audio options. Once a video is finished, it can be directly published to YouTube in any format, whether as a Short or long-form video. This streamlined uploading process gets content in front of viewers more quickly.

YouTube aims to capitalize on the rising popularity of Shorts while still catering to traditional creators with longer videos. Create offers tools similar to those found in popular editing apps like CapCut, giving users a familiar, easy-to-use set of options for customizing their clips. Initial testing showed promise, and the broader rollout will help determine if Create truly simplifies and streamlines the video creation process.

While only available on Android devices presently, Create recently expanded to over a dozen new regions including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand and Turkey.

This brings the total number of markets with access to over 15. As more YouTubers around the world gain access, we may see editing habits change and overall content quality improve as barriers to experimenting are reduced. Only time will tell if Create becomes a staple in the toolkit of YouTube content producers.
