YouTube video sharing now available on Snapchat for Android and iOS

Snapchat has added a feature that would allow you to share your current YouTube Music playlist or track and now you can directly share YouTube videos on Snapchat for Android and iOS.

Snapchat introduced this new change in an official blog post and for those wondering, this feature means that copying and pasting isn’t something you would need thanks to the fact that there is now direct interaction in the YouTube share sheet. This means that sending clips to friends or adding video links to Story posts is now much easier.

Snapchat users can now share YouTube videos seamlessly

That’s what Snapchat had to say.

Starting today, all Snapchatters on iOS and Android can seamlessly share their favorite YouTube videos with their friends directly through the Snapchat camera – no more copy-pasting!

The news is certainly important because it will be the first time that YouTube links on Snapchat will have a mini-player sticker or animation. If you send or receive a Snap with an embedded YouTube link, you can simply tap the sticker and it will open the video in the YouTube app or in a browser based on the recipient’s device settings.

It’s the first time that YouTube links can be shared visually to Snapchat stories and individual snaps, while accessing the camera and full suite of Snapchat creative tools for self-expression. Our actionable YouTube stickers take Snapchatters straight to the video in the YouTube app or their favorite mobile browser.

Fortunately, the process is not that difficult. All you need to do is open the YouTube app on your Android phone and then tap the “Share” button. At the top of YouTube’s share sheet, you’ll now get the Snapchat logo, and tapping it will open it right in the app and let you place a recent video, photo, or story. You don’t have to send grainy low resolution videos anymore with this feature.
