Did you know that you can privately chat with your contacts in the YouTube mobile application? Our guide will show you how to create a chat with one of your YouTube contacts.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the YouTube app on iOS.
Step 1: Tap “Inbox” at the bottom of the screen.
Step 2: Tap “Friends” near the top of the screen. Note: If you’ve recently looked at your YouTube notifications, you may need to tap “Messages” near the top of the “Inbox” screen to see the Friends option.
Step 3: Near the top of the screen, long-press on the friend you wish to start a chat with. Note: If you don’t see the friend you’re looking for, tap “View All” near the top-right corner of the screen to view all of your YouTube friends.
Step 4: Tap “Chat with [name].”
From there, you can send a message or YouTube video to the person you’ve decided to chat with.
