It only makes sense for YouTube to merge them both, with the company unveiling a new Shorts experience for your home TV, which will display Shorts in a full-screen, interactive style on your bigger viewing device.
The new Shorts display, as seen in this image, will provide a smaller viewing window in the centre of the screen, while users will be able to interact with Shorts clips using their TV remote, allowing them to skip through, choose subject tags, and more.
According to YouTube, it performed numerous user experiments to determine the optimum presentation structure for Shorts on the larger screen, with the goal of creating an experience that preserved the spirit of Shorts in a new way.
