YouTube launches instant messaging app

youtube_reuters_123 copy



YouTube has launched a messaging feature that allows viewers to share videos and chat with friends without leaving the mobile app.
Wired reports that the new ‘native sharing’ feature went live for a small percentage of users.
Instead of having to forward a video to Facebook or copying and pasting links to email, users can start message threads from a new tab within YouTube’s mobile app.
Friends can also add new videos to the conversation thread.
The move to create direct messaging is seen as a response to the rising popularity of other video sharing and instant messaging platforms like Facebook and Snapchat.
