YouTube Brings Chat to its App

YouTube has added a new feature that will allow users to share a video and chat about it in a private thread, all through the YouTube app. The feature is very similar to Android’s messaging app. Users can share a video with someone in their contact or a group and can chat about it.

The feature will be built into YouTube’s share button which will let users select people from their contact list. One can also get a direct link which will help to add people, not in your contact list and join the discussion.

This YouTube share feature was already available in Canada at the beginning of this year, but now it is rolling out to users globally. It is a much quicker way of sharing videos and provides a dedicated space for discussing videos.
