Snapchat users can now share videos directly from the YouTube app on Android, iOS

Snapchat users on Android and iOS can now share videos directly from the YouTube app. The update aims to make it easier to share YouTube videos on Snapchat, without requiring users to manually copy and paste video links into content. YouTube videos can be added directly to Stories and individual Snaps via the Snapchat camera. Creators who post new videos to YouTube will have the opportunity to be noticed more by Snapchat users with the new experience rolling out globally.

Once a video is shared from YouTube, it can be viewed on Snapchat Story or Snap by tapping the YouTube sticker. It will take users directly to the YouTube app installed on their devices or their preferred mobile browser.

How to Share YouTube Videos on Snapchat

With the latest Snapchat update, you can share your favorite YouTube videos on the Snapchat app by following the steps below:

  1. Open the YouTube app and select a video to watch.

  2. Press on To share then select the Snapchat icon from the menu below. This will take you to the Snapchat camera.

  3. Now the video will appear as an automated YouTube sticker on your original Snap. You can also use the creative tools available to add effects and filters.

  4. Once done, tap the Camera button to save your Snap.

Until now, Snapchat users could share YouTube video links on Snapchat after capturing their Snaps. Users had to add the video links manually after copying them from YouTube.

The latest integration would come in very handy if Snapchat users are looking to share vertical videos – especially YouTube shorts – that match their Snaps and Stories on the platform.
