YouTube, the 2nd most popular website on Earth has revealed plans that it will be ditching the Video Editor service it provides to content creators. With a website sitting in the top level of websites in the world, it would be funny to think that YouTube is making a decision like this, but the website has announced that features like this aren’t used by the number of people as it had originally targeted. A huge website like YouTube would want its users to be utilising all of its features, so it isn’t much of a surprise to see YouTube getting rid of its video editor and photo slideshows on the 20th of September.
One of YouTube’s community managers, Marissa, took to the YouTube Help Forum to explain that both of the tools are going to be discarded due to limited usage. By doing this, the company intends to concentrate on producing new features as well as expanding currently available features. So this means that content creators have approximately 2 months to complete any video projects in the works before YouTube pulls the plug on the two features. Thereafter, they will not have any access to the video projects, however, any videos that have already been published via the Video Editor will not be harmed.
Do you think YouTube has made a smart or pointless move?
