YouTube has announced this today.

YouTube did not say when Reels will arrive in beta form.

YouTube calls Reels as a spin on Stories but the feature differs from the latter in many ways.

Stories are coming to YouTube next
YouTube Exploring New "Stories" Feature

YouTube is reportedly testing a new feature called "Reels", which will be similar to the Stories feature you now see on Snapchat and Instagram. This new feature comes as a part of expanding YouTube Community to more creators.

YouTube is describing Reels as approach to make the connection between creators and fans much better. Additionally, YouTube Community also allows content creators to easily link to other videos and take advantage of various stickers. Instead, it will appear in a dedicated tab, separate from a creator's main list of videos. YouTube is also integrating features already available on Community for Reels. Most significant divergence from the other stories features is that the Reels would not be disappearing after some set time or after twenty-four hours. "We learned that you want the flexibility to create multiple Reels and have them not expire, so we'll give you those options", notes the blog post.

Users will also be allowed to add custom music and text and can engage with the Reels by giving them a thumbs up or a thumbs down, similar to YouTube videos and comment on them. Reels is now in beta mode and the final product is expected to launch soon, but after proper experimentation. YouTube Reels was first spotted in May 2017 but no details were revealed then.

YouTube has also made some changes to the Community tab.

Meanwhile, "your most engaged viewers" can now see Community posts in their Home feed, whether or not they're subscribed to your channel. Users will also have the opportunity to evaluate the Reels, putting them huskies or dslan. These accounts will now have the ability to post text, images, polls, GIFs, and host livestreams for their fans.
