YouTube Shorts Watched By Over 1.5 Bil Logged-In Users/Mo.; Company Cites Rise Of Multiform Creator

June 15, 2022 | Per Deadline:

"YouTube said today that more than 1.5 billion logged-in users are watching YouTube Shorts every month as it moves to cement its role as rival to short-form juggernaut TikTok.

Google’s YouTube launched Shorts in late 2020 to compete with the ubiquitous social media platform owned by ByteDance of China. TikTok, which saw its global popularity explode during the pandemic, had announced 1 billion monthly users in September of 2021, the last official data available, but was forecast to hit 1.5 billion this year, according to press reports."
