YouTube Shorts continue to grow in popularity, so it’s no surprise that YouTube is looking for new ways to promote them. In particular, it became known that Shorts are currently being tested in the YouTube Music application.
Vertical videos may appear as a separate tab in the bottom panel, which, however, will be called Samples. The logo is also different, so it’s not clear yet whether it will be Shorts itself or YouTube Music’s own vertical video section. In addition, you can see the Shorts button separately in the open Samples video.

It is quite possible that Samples will become a section with recommendations, where you can find new interesting compositions for yourself. Or a certain mix of recommendations and vertical music videos that can often be seen in Shorts.
