YouTube needs no introductions. It is without a doubt the world’s biggest video sharing community and after Google bought it, they made it known to the entire world. Now, YouTube offers users, besides millions of videos on any subject, video editing tools and the possibility to make money with your channel.

Some might wonder: what other tools could the guys at Google offer users to make their YouTube experience even better? Well, a new tool now offers the possibility to create Intros and Outros for their videos, so their subscribers can have a more pleasant experience on their channel.

YouTube +Introduction Tool

This tool is available for all users that like to create a short video to introduce their viewers to the main part of their playlist. This tool can make your playlist look more professional and seem much more like a news report than a simple collection of video. As with all of Google’s products, this tool is extremely simple to use and with a few clicks you are done.
