How to share a YouTube link in Snapchat.


Snap, the parent company of disappearing-message platform Snapchat, said Thursday that users will now be able to share YouTube video links through the app. The links will be made into stickers that users can apply to videos or pictures of themselves.

"With this new integration, we're making it easier than ever for these viewers to send their favorite clips and videos right where they are already talking with their friends on Snapchat," Snap wrote in a news release. "At Snap, we believe in the power of visual communication, and with this partnership, we're giving our community infinite ways to express themselves."
