YouTube Stories is a feature on YouTube where users can post mobile-only short videos which expire after a week.
All the major social media platforms continue to develop their version of “stories”. In a blog post, Google confirmed YouTube now had AR effects for Stories.
One feature that helps this AR program stand out is its machine learning capabilities that bypasses the need for a depth sensor. This means that the AR filters can work on pre-recorded videos.
The AR filter creates 3D meshes which means that the filters appear more real with simulated light reflections and shadows.
YouTube Stories is still currently only available to those with over 10,000 subscribers.
