The Yandex team continues to develop its analogue of TikTok in a branded mobile application. In August, an endless feed of short vertical videos by Yandex Zen bloggers appeared in the application, and now it is possible to shoot and edit short videos.
The Yandex app now has tools such as a camera and video editor. The project was implemented by Yandex.Dzen developers.
As the developers promise, the editor has a large set of functions that will allow you to create memorable short videos for both novice bloggers and professionals. You can apply an effect or filter to the video, use transitions, stickers or text. You can trim, rotate and edit clips from multiple videos. A music library and a set of presets are also provided. The presets are already available in the Yandex app for iOS and will soon appear on Android.
If the user of the application does not yet have a Zen channel, he can start it in two clicks and immediately upload the finished video to the Zen feed. Videos created in the editor can be saved to the device.
Yandex.Zen has also expanded its support program for short video creators and will pay additional 100 million rubles to authors from October to December 2021.
