There are many discussions nowadays as to who is the best YouTuber. Many people stand by PewDiePie, but Jake Paul and his Team 10 squad are quickly becoming a force to recon with. Heck, even Jake’s brother, Logan Paul, is delivering some amazing content lately. OK, before you get too mad, please know that I am being facetious. The Paul brothers are probably the worst thing on YouTube these days, but I’ll confess that the drama surrounding them keeps me on the edge of my seat. Seeing Killa’ Keemstar report on the latest foolishness by Jake and Logan on Drama Alert is pure gold.
If you want to share the latest videos by Jake, Logan, or any other YouTuber, Google has a new solution that you may appreciate. Rather than just send a link, you can share and discuss the video from within the YouTube app itself. Very cool.
“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,” says Benoît de Boursetty, Product Manager, Google.
As you can see above, this new sharing feature makes watching a YouTube video more of a communal affair, almost as if the person with whom you shared is there with you. This is not just beneficial for the viewers, but for content creators too. Not only does this help with immediate views, but it should help with overall discovery as a way for content creators to potentially get new subscribers.
