How to chat with your friends on YouTube


Every Now and then, you come across something on Google's video sharing platform YouTube that you want to immediately share with your friends. However, did you know that there's also an option to chat while watching a video. This means you need not exit your YouTube app to chat or send an important message to someone. Here's a step-by-step on how you can do this:

Using YouTube app: * Open YouTube and login with your account

* Tap on Activity tab placed at the third place at bottom

* Here you will find two subheads -- Shared and notifications. Tap on Shared.

* Tap on Contacts

* Here you will find a list of suggested contacts, that YouTube feels "You may know" with a quick shortcut to add them

* Besides that, YouTube will give you two options to add more contacts

* First, sending an invitation link. This is a customised link you need to share with your friends for them to add them in your contacts

* Second, "Find in your phone book", which is a much more convenient way, once you you give access of your contacts to YouTube

* Tap on chat, to find a familiar personal chat window

* Tap on the three dots icon on the top right corner to find options like -- adding a participant (to turn it into a group conversation), leave the chat and mute notifications

* You can even create a Group from the beginning itself by tapping on New Group under the shared tab. You will first have to create a group name and then add participants from your contacts However, do note that the recipient should have his/her YouTube notifications settings switched on, else they won't be notified. Recently, the same messaging feature was rolled out for the web version as well. Here is how to use it:

* Open YouTube and login with your account and go to Home Page

* Look for a "Share" button between the bell and quick launcher

* Click on that icon and you will find the list of contacts that you have on YouTube

* To add a new contact, click on "Contacts" on the right corner of the tab

* Here, a list of suggested contacts, that YouTube feels "You may know" with a quick shortcut to add them

* If you do not find the desired person on the suggested list, there is only one way to add them which is via sending an invitation link. This is a customised link you need to share with your friends for them to add them in your contacts.

* The options of creating a group, leaving a conversation, muting notifications are available on desktop as well.

Just like the app, here also do note that the recipient should have his/her YouTube notifications settings switched on, else they won't be notified.
