This in-app feature enables users to share a video with friends and even chat about it in a private thread. Because after extensive testing in Canada and Latin America, YouTube's in-app video sharing/DM feature is finally rolling out across the world.

The latest update of YouTube for iOS and android where it adds an another tab named 'Shared.' Tapping on this a Google Allo-like chat interface will open which will allow sharing the videos that you want with your contacts directly. You just need to tap the "share" button on a video, which gives you an option to send it directly through the YouTube app to your contact list.

The new feature is only available on the iOS and Android YouTube apps, and can not be accessed on the desktop version of the website. YouTube now adds new sharing platform for easy sharing of videos as well as chatting with your contacts. We think it will make sharing easier, faster and more fun on your phone.

The YouTube app's messaging/video sharing feature has been in testing since past year. You can access the same tab to start fresh conversations or participate in an existing one while on the move.

Interestingly, users will not only be able to send a video to one person, but also to several people to initiate a group chat. You can also choose multiple contacts within the panel. For now, YouTube has a troubleshooter tool that explains each icon's meaning, in addition to the meanings of other icons that may pop up while a video is under review, if you're sharing revenue from a video with another account.

Till now YouTube was only an entertainment spreading app now it has become a messenger with the sharing option. Now you and your friend can discuss the video, share it, all within the YouTube app. To see what I mean, go to the desktop version of YouTube, find your favorite slow song, change the playback speed to 1.25x or 1.5x, and witness that composition in an entirely new light.

With other social platforms offering less and less support for YouTube videos in favour of their own, the site has taken a few more steps to turn themselves into a bit of a social network.
