YouTube is testing a new icon for its TikTok-like Shorts tool, which is only available in India right now (where TikTok is banned), and which is rolling out to other markets in coming months.
The new logo button — which features the familiar YouTube play button in white atop a red squiggle of sorts — is currently being tested within the Android app, Social Media Today reports.
In the app, the logo appears on the so-called Shorts Shelf at the top of the YouTube homepage — a key discovery carousel featuring users’ short-form Shorts. You can check it out below, as first spotted by social media commentator and consultant Matt Navarra.
Shorts is a short-form video service that lets user create and upload a video of 15 seconds or less on YouTube. Currently available in early beta in India, the service is part of YouTube app for Android. It features a multi-segment camera to string multiple video clips together, the option to record with music from a library of songs, speed controls, and a timer and countdown to keep you notified.
