The video sharing company made many improvements and changes to make it user-friendly and released to the feature after taking feedback from the users.

YouTube has launched a new feature for its mobile app that allows users to converse and share videos in a chat like interface very similar to Instagram.

YouTube explains that you can invite friends to join a conversation you're having on YouTube, and to hold general chats within the app. But anyway, the feature is there for you to use and explore on your YouTube mobile app. YouTube then redirects you to search page where you will see all your recently watched videos, or you can simply search another video and share. "We think it'll make sharing easier, faster and more fun on your phone", YouTube announced in a blog post.

The new feature is the result of the testing that YouTube started last year and debuted in Canada at the beginning of this year. The company also allows users to text along with emojis to make the conducive environment for the chatting.

The feature can be found built-in the YouTube app sharing button. On the same lines, the app has now been updated with yet again and this time it brings in a lot of new interesting new features to the table.

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 has an estimated 1.5 billion monthly active users, so we hope the update will work for video creators and their ad revenues. But you probably do exchange a lot of videos with your friends on your various messaging apps and discuss said videos as well. However, Google has now added another convenient method to share your favourite stuff from YouTube. This still does not compare with other usual messaging apps.

But according to the Mayor's office, all four videos reported by the Met have at least double, and in one case over 20 times this many views, with one displaying advertisements from the Great British Sewing Bee and watchmaker Christopher Ward.
