YouTube has a new messaging service that makes it easy for people to easily share videos and have private conversations around them with friends. Instead of having users leave the platform to share videos with friends on other platforms, like Facebook, YouTube is trying to keep people on their own platform. by offering an easy way for people to share and talk about videos with friends directly on YouTube. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to use YouTube’s messaging service with your friends instead of Facebook messenger.

From your mobile device, tap this link to add me as a contact on YouTube and unlock the sharing feature:
(NOTE 1: If my link no longer works and you have the sharing feature, post your link in the comments for someone else.)
(NOTE 2: Due to the volume of new contacts, I may have to remove you as a new contact, but you should still retain the sharing feature.)
