YouTube expanded the availability of its YouTube Stories feature for creators, which allows them to share photos and videos with viewers (both subscribers and non-subscribers) that will remain visible in the YouTube mobile application for seven days. So far, this feature is only available for eligible creators with more than 10,000 subscribers. If you qualify, our guide will show you how to create and share a Stories post on your channel.
