Following in the trend of companies integrating generative AI in their products, YouTube also introduced new tools to help AI creators.
The AI feature called Dream Screen meant for YouTube Shorts lets creators use AI-generated video backgrounds for their vertical videos.
To enable the feature, creators type in their background idea to prompt the action (like "cat types on keyboard") and the platform creates it for them.
It is right now being rolled out to only a few users and will be available to the general public next year.
Another tool helps brainstorm and draft outlines for video ideas or search for music using a phrase.
YouTube will also be launching a dubbing tool that will allow creators to share videos in different languages.
Creators of YouTube Shorts are excited about features like the dubbing tool because of the potential to reach global audiences across languages.
Critics are concerned about the widespread use of AI-powered tools, as they may be used to spread misinformation or deepfakes, perpetuating biases.
