I must say I wasn't surprised with this update as I was already anticipating it for a while. You know as a popular saying goes "if you can't beat them, join them". That may go against everything they teach you in business school, but that’s the lesson we can draw from the past two years Instagram’s spent steadfastly copying Snapchat and remaining at the top of the game!.

Now Google YouTube has joined the league, announcing YouTube stories to all eligible creators with10K+ subscribers. With YouTube stories, you can add text, music, filters, YouTube stickers, and more to make your story uniquely you.



How to Create YouTube Story

To create a story, just open the YouTube mobile app, tap on the video camera icon, and select “Create Story.”

Comments have also been added to stories – so the entire community can be a part of the conversation. Subscribers can comment, thumbs up and thumbs down comments, and you can heart comments.

And all of the comment moderation tools that are available on video uploads will also be available on Stories. You can now also respond directly to a fan comment with a photo or video for the entire community to see!

Stories are available in the mobile app for 7 days once live and all your fans will see it within that 7 days. WellI guess you might be able to monetize your stories but no official updates has been given on that yet.
