YouTube is extending its bite-sized video feature Shorts to the television screen across the world, the video-sharing platform announced on November 8 as it looks to counter growing competition from rivals such as Meta and TikTok across the world.

The company said this feature will be rolled out over the coming weeks to smart television models, game consoles, and streaming devices made in 2019 or later. Users will be able to play these short videos from the new Shorts shelf on the homepage of the YouTube app or on a creator’s channel page.

“While this may seem like a natural next step, an incredible amount of thought and care has gone into bringing this vertical, mobile-first experience to the big screen,” said YouTube chief product officer Neal Mohan in a blog post.
