Youtube wants to be WhatsApp: instant messaging arrives

While YouTube is undoubtedly the most popular video platform worldwide, it has to be recognized that as an app has ahead of some mythical ones like WhatsApp or Facebook. Something logical on the other hand, after all, they do not do the same thing. However, with that blissful habit of drawing inspiration from each other, it now appears that YouTube will be able to get on the IM cart . So that we understand each other, now you can also have private conversations on the video platform.

Surprising and a lot because YouTube as a concept is simply perfect . In this platform we can find absolutely everything: tutorials, video clips, films, summaries ... even has come a way to make a living around the platform, what today we know as youtubers , authentic idols of youth masses. And although there are other platforms, YouTube has convinced by its simplicity of use and extensive catalog.

Well, it seems that on YouTube they also want to expand their customer horizon (or perhaps secure them to spend even more time in the application) by offering support for instant messaging. Can you ever shadow WhatsApp?

Of course, it will be very useful to share videos with our contacts , but I do not know how many people will be dedicated to hold conversations well because if in the application. Of course, it will be very comfortable to be able to talk while watching a video without needing to leave the app. With this new functionality, YouTube gains in fun to comment the videos with our contacts. It remains to be seen whether in addition to speaking in private, will integrate other functions such as grouping or file transmission, or perhaps it is too much to ask.

This experimental function was implemented in Canada a few months ago but is now when it has begun to export to the rest of the world. It is anticipated that it will soon arrive in Spain , predictably first to Android and later to iOS.
