YouTube kills a feature you probably weren’t using anyway

What you need to know

  • YouTube Stories will be discontinued on June 26.
  • The feature debuted in 2017, but it wasn’t available to users with less than 10,000 subscribers.
  • YouTube says it intends to shift its focus to Shorts and Community posts.

YouTube’s copycat of Snapchat’s Story feature is headed for the Google graveyard on June 26.

The video-sharing platform announced in a blog post that it will shut down YouTube Stories next month as part of an effort to shift its focus to Shorts and Community posts (via The Verge). YouTube Stories struggled to gain traction with users since its rollout in 2018, primarily because it’s only available to creators with more than 10,000 subscribers, among other factors.
