YouTube has added an in-app messaging feature for sharing and chatting about videos that allow you to share videos and chat about them in a private thread within the YouTube app.
This mobile-only feature works like a text message thread or email. The plus side, once the video is shared with a contact, you can message directly without leaving the YouTube app. And who doesn’t want to share a video without receiving one? When responding to a video thread the user can press the reel icon and send a video in return.
The feature will be built into YouTube’s share button and lets you select from your phones contact list. You can also get a direct link to share and add new friends to discuss the video with.
The cool thing about this new feature is that instead of copying and pasting links to YouTube videos via text message of Facebook Messanger it does all the sharing in one App.
