Share Youtube videos with friends

Youtube has made it even eas­ier to share videos with your friends by let­ting you do so with­out leav­ing its mo­bile apps. Rather than shar­ing links via What­sapp, Twit­ter or Face­book, this new fea­ture lets you choose one of your con­tacts to share a video with di­rectly. It’s sim­ple to use – you just open a video, press the Share but­ton and tap the face of the per­son you want to send it to. Once they have ap­proved your re­quest, you can chat about the video in both one-to-one and group con­ver­sa­tions.

But that’s not all. Youtube has also added a dark mode, which works when you have a video play­ing in land­scape mode: dou­ble-tap the space above the Play/pause but­ton and the screen will darken to re­duce eye strain.

There’s also a bet­ter way of blur­ring faces when you up­load a video, which lets you ob­scure spe­cific peo­ple. Youtube can now au­to­mat­i­cally de­tect faces, so you can set it to au­to­mat­i­cally blur a per­son through­out the video. To ac­cess this new fea­ture, click your pro­file im­age, select Cre­ator Stu­dio, find an up­loaded video and click Edit, then choose En­hance­ments, Blur­ring Ef­fects. Select Edit next to Blur Faces and choose who to blur. www.youtube.com
