YouTube has begun introducing distinct tabs for Live Videos, Shorts, and Videos as a follow-up to the new look and a number of new features that were made available to users earlier this week. When visiting a creator’s channel page, viewers will now be able to find the kinds of content they are most interested in more easily, claims YouTube.
According to YouTube, it implemented these adjustments in response to user input and is now making it simpler for users to navigate the platforms’ video categories. The fact that viewers won’t be immediately directed to the creator’s long-form content as a result of this will probably increase the number of views that YouTube Shorts receive.
Given the popularity of TikTok and Instagram reels, YouTube is also spending a lot of money encouraging platform users to produce more short-form content than the conventional long-form that YouTube is known for. Short-form video is becoming more popular across platforms, and YouTube is now providing creators with alternatives for making money from their YouTube Shorts.

With this new design upgrade, the YouTube app now has three different tabs for creator pages: Shorts which houses the short form content; Live Tab, which has all of the scheduled, ongoing, or archived streams from the creator; and Video Tab, which contains all of the long-form material.
The new update of the YouTube app is going live today. In the coming weeks, this change will reflect on all platforms and all three tabs will be public.
