YouTube video editor will be shut down soon

YouTube logoAs YouTube is the most popular online video service in the world, you might not think that there are some features on the website that no one uses, but that’s the case as far as the YouTube video editor and photo slideshows are concerned. YouTube has said that these features aren’t used by as many people as it might have hoped and thus it no longer makes any sense to keep them around. This is why YouTube is shutting down its video editor and photo slideshows soon.

Marissa, a community manager at YouTube, revealed on the YouTube Help Forum that both features are being shut down due to limited usage. The features are being retired so that the company can focus its efforts on building new tools and improving existing features.

YouTube video editor will be shut down soon

YouTube will shut down video editor and photo slideshows on September 20th, 2017. This gives users almost two months to finalize any existing video projects before the features are completely shut down. Once that happens, users will no longer have access to projects in video editor but any videos that they have already published with the Video Editor will be not be affected.

YouTube is retaining the Enhancements feature in Video Manager, it enables users to upload their videos with edits such as trimming, blurring, and filters.
