YouTube channels will finally stop displaying shorts in the Videos tab

Following the major overhaul earlier this week, YouTube is deployment a really nice change that means short films will no longer appear in the same tab as videos on channel pages.

YouTube’s short film push has seen the short form pop up all over the service. After hearing the “Comments”, YouTube is now rolling out separate tabs for Videos, Live Streams and Short Films instead of all content appearing in the same “Videos” tab.

This combined default behavior – YouTube added filters that weren’t sticky – was awful for littering the feed with vertical thumbnails that had short titles and “#shorts” as brands flowed into the format. Regular videos got cluttered and scrolling got quite annoying.

We’ve heard that this will make it easier for viewers to discover the types of content they’re most interested in when exploring a creator’s channel page. We are therefore delighted to present all this to you!

  • shorts tab: Here you will only see Shorts. When you watch Shorts in the Shorts feed and access a creator’s channel from the feed, you will be taken directly to this new tab to continue enjoying Shorts
  • Live tab: you will find all streams in this tab, including those that are currently active, scheduled or archived
  • Videos tab: This will continue to host long-form content

You will also get filters for “Recently uploaded” and “Popular”. This is rolling out starting today and will be fully available “on all devices” in the coming weeks.
