YouTube introduces chat interface for sharing videos

YouTube introduces chat interface for sharing videos

In the blog post, YouTube also notes that it has improved the feature according to the feedback it got from users over the past year.

YouTube on its blog stated that "Starting from today, you can share videos with your friends and family directly on YouTube". Lastly, this would help YouTube in capitalizing on the Social App and Messaging category which has been very successful.

Perhaps best of all, though, it also gives users a dedicated space to privately chat about videos outside of YouTube's notoriously troll-ridden comments. We think it will make sharing easier, faster and more fun on your phone. This will essentially make it a lot easier to see which videos you and friends have shared recently and watch it.

Earlier this year, YouTube launched a new private video sharing functionality for the service on mobile. You can access the same tab to start fresh conversations or participate in an existing one while on the move.

The feature can be found built-in the YouTube app sharing button.

YouTube tests out many small updates like this one on small subsets of its user base, and 9 to 5 Google's discovery does not guarantee that playback speed controls will come to the video site's apps.

YouTube has announced that it is now rolling out its in-app direct messaging feature worldwide. The YouTube team chose the Canadian market for its pilot programme since Canadians are claimed to share videos 15 percent more often than other global users. Users also have the option to include a message alongside the video by simply typing on the text box beneath the suggested contacts list. The update also allows users to create an infinite playlist of songs with unlimited skips and check out all the videos and personalized recommendations. It's basically like having an in-app messaging option. As users mostly share links from YouTube onto other social media platforms to discuss the videos, it seems like YouTube wants them to stay on its platform and discuss everything right there.

THE MAYOR of London, Sadiq Khan, has called on YouTube and its parent company Google to crack down on online videos that encourage gang violence and knife crime, urging all online platforms to do more to remove this content and prevent it from reappearing.
