YouTube's new messaging tool pairs chats with cats

Now you won't need to leave YouTube to share your favourite video with your chums.


YouTube is souping up its mobile app with a new feature -- an instant messaging service that lets you share and chat about your new favourite cat video without having to leave the app.

The existing share option on a video will allow you to share the video directly to a contact, Wired reports. You'll then be able to see that message as a thread in a tab within the YouTube app, letting you and your friends comment and chat about the video, or let them reply with videos of their own.

The feature is reportedly being rolled out Thursday to a select group of users. YouTube did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
