YouTube adds sharing videos tab to mobile app

YouTube adds sharing videos tab to mobile app

Youtube said it was committed to continuing and improving its work on this issue and making the site "a hostile space for those who seek to do harm". YouTube initially started testing a invite based beta version of the feature with a few select users in May a year ago. Keep in mind that the new messaging feature is only available on mobile devices.

The videos in question, which reportedly feature gang members wielding large knives and describing killing methods in a bid to intimidate rivals, have not been removed, as YouTube maintains that the videos do not breach their terms. This will essentially make it a lot easier to see which videos you and friends have shared recently and watch it. Well the video-sharing giant has now gone and done that, giving you another option to share videos aside from the usual.

The "share" button now includes a way to select recipients from your contact list and forward the app in YouTube. They have been trying to identify the chat apps that work the most for their audiences so that they can be leveraged for distributing digital content in the form of video, surveys, images, and articles. Users can start a chat/group amongst their contacts on YouTube and share videos easily.

This is now the challenge that YouTube is facing with this new feature, as pointed out by Engadget. But it won not reach all the users of the YouTube in worldwide for a few days. You can even create your own groups just like you do on WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. Along with watching videos on YouTube users share many videos with their peers.

The messaging feature can accommodate groups as large as 30 people in one chat thread. Direct invite link will be sent to the contacts, or you can directly add them to contacts through the app.

The green and black icons make it clear which videos are totally acceptable in YouTube's eyes and which are not, however the yellow icon is a bit more nebulous. However, before this update, YouTube has been involved in testing the beta version of the feature since May previous year. The beta version of this was then rolled out earlier this year in January, but it was only made available to users in Canada at the time, according to Digital Trends.

Four "violent videos" posted on YouTube have not been removed despite requests from police, the Mayor of London says, BBC reported.
