YouTube is killing off a feature you probably weren’t using anyway and won’t miss. June 26th marks the death of YouTube Stories, a feature released in 2017 shortly before the company announced “Reels” – now YouTube Shorts. What made YouTube Stories different is that the videos were temporary, disappearing after a week. It also wasn’t available to users with fewer than 10,000 subscribers.
This 10K subscriber requirement almost certainly doomed YouTube Stories from the beginning. It remained in beta since its initial launch and never gained in popularity at all. In fact, I can’t recall a single time in the last six years that I’ve ever seen any of the creators I follow actually post a “Story”. Sure, there have been plenty of Shorts, but not Stories.
