YouTube launches a new in-app video sharing and messaging feature

Speed controls now appear as an option in the dots menu on You Tube for Android version

The feature allows YouTube users to send their friends videos and chat from within a new tab in the mobile app - effectively turning YouTube into a mobile messenger of sorts. We have been monitoring the increased prevalence since September 2015, and you only have to look at the number of views they get to see how widespread this has now become.

For this new feature, a brand new tab has now been added to the app by Google to enable you share videos with your friends. If you send it via YouTube, the person will notice your message it as soon as they open the YouTube app. Google says those suggestions take into account which people you interact with on YouTube and other Google services, which is to say, people that you email or chat with in Hangouts will presumably show up here as well.

Starting today, you can share videos with your friends and family directly on YouTube. With several current and eventual smartphones featuring longer displays in an effort to minimize bezels, the update is sure to be a welcome one. Pressing it pulls up your most recently viewed videos, but you can also tap a search button to find basically anything else you'd want to add to the conversation.

The spokesperson said gangs try to outdo each other with filming and content, and that what often appear to be just music videos actually contain real threats of violence. Otherwise, you're limited to text and emoji.

Indeed, this new feature will probably be most utilized by heavy YouTube users - probably the kinds of people who frequently upload and create their own videos as well as just watch. But now, this feature is available for mobile users too. The in-app video sharing feature that was earlier available to select market, is now being rolled out to a global audience.

He said: "Google, YouTube and other platforms have a responsibility to the millions of young people using their sites every day, and it is vital that they toughen up their guidelines, remove breaches immediately and work with partners to help ensure such horrific videos do not reappear".

YouTube is getting a new in-app chat feature that makes sharing and gabbing about videos a lot easier. Users can have individual threads, as well as larger group ones for privately sharing, liking, and commenting on videos.
