Google announces the end of a YouTube feature you may not even know it had

Sometimes we have so many options and tools on one platform that we don’t even get to know them all. It is possibly what happened to you with the YouTube Stories. And at this point… you shouldn’t waste time discovering it either. It turns out that this feature, available on the video service, is going to say goodbye soon, being removed forever. We tell you when.

YouTube Stories

Stories should not be confused with YouTube Shorts. The latter seem to have caught on quite well on the video platform, being a boost for content channels and offering a very style TikTok in which users stay hooked for a long time, going from one to another.
