YouTube is the most widely used video streaming platform, and not one was able to overpass it. After getting popularity, Google decided to equip YouTube with new features to make this app more favourable for people. In doing so, it launched YouTube messages: A private messaging feature. It seems like this feature couldn’t perform well as Google has announced that it will soon shut down the YouTube private messaging feature. This decision has come due to two reason. 1) Not many people are using YouTube Messaging. 2) Mostly kids are using this feature, which poses security concerns for them.
Wave Goodbye to YouTube Private Messaging Feature
The feature was launched in the year 2017; however, due to the availability of other messaging platforms like WhatsApp, etc., this feature couldn’t gain popularity. Though Google has not announced the official date, according to rumours, the feature will shut down after on September 18.
YouTube is a video streaming platform, and no one can complete it. But this feature was not just meant for a platform like this. After reanalysing the company has decided to discontinue the messaging option. Moreover, YouTUbe plans to work more on improving public conversations rather than wasting resource on this available feature.
Users would be able to share the videos by clicking on the share button below the video and then clicking on “social network icon” and sharing it with friends. Are you happy about this decision of Google? Let us know in the comments section below.
