YouTube’s latest private video sharing feature “Shared Tab” that was only limited to Canada and North America is now rolling out to all of the Android and iOS devices globally. The Shared tab is placed on the bottom bar of YouTube app.

Using “Shared Tab”, users can have single or multiple threads for sharing liking or commenting on videos. Those threads will serve as a chat window where you could share videos with contacts.

In a blog post about the new Sharing tab feature, YouTube states:

Starting today, you can share videos with your friends and family directly on YouTube. Not only can you share and receive videos in the app, you can also chat about them right on YouTube, reply with another video, invite others to the conversation, and more. We think it’ll make sharing easier, faster and more fun on your phone. And if you want to continue sharing videos through other apps, you can still do that too.

Sharing videos on sharing tab are same as before. All you need to do is “Tap on Share Button”. The only difference is when you tap on Share icon it lists several contacts for immediate sharing. You can choose multiple contacts within one panel. After selecting contacts, you also get a text window to caption your message.

After hitting the send button, a new tab with selected contacts is created automatically wherein all the members can share their views on the video, and they can also share a new video. Users can like the video by tapping on heart button placed next to the video. This new tab will now be a part of YouTube app on your device. It will make it easier for you and your friends to share videos at one place instead of sending links to every friend one by one.

Not on Desktop yet

In the blog post, YouTube also notes that it has improved the feature according to the feedback it got from users over the past year. For now, this feature is limited to Android and iOS. We hope that YouTube brings the Shared tab feature to the desktop too.
