YouTube brings Shorts to desktop

YouTube is bringing its short-video format section called YouTube Shorts to desktops and tablets. The section was previously accessible only to mobile phones and users could not open Shorts videos on platforms like desktops, tablets and Smart TVs.

Now, Google plans to roll out support for desktops and tablets, but it seems like Smart TVs will still not be able to play Shorts clips for now.

The change is expected to come over the next few weeks. This is good news for tablet and desktop users as many people enjoy consuming content on larger screens instead of smart phones.

It remains to be seen how the implementation will be organised into the YouTube interface for desktops and tablets, which is different from that on smartphones, where YouTube Shorts has its own section.
