Send a YouTube Video by Text Message

Someone asked me the other day how to share a YouTube video via text messaging on a smartphone. This is a handy tip for those who work with youth, who frequently view YouTube videos and use text messaging.

First, download the YouTube app through the Google Play Store or App Store- both are free.

Find the video you want on YouTube. Tap the “share” icon in the upper right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




You should get options to share the video through (text) “Messaging” on Android or "Message" on iPhone. Other apps you have downloaded will also be included as sharing options.

Sharing options on my son's iPhone:

share from iphone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Android: just add the text recipients name/number and a link to the video will be sent via text.
text on Android

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Same with iPhone, just enter the text recipient's name
send text on iphone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The recipient(s) will get the text with the link to the video and be able to view it.

If you need help sharing videos from your phone, please contact me or Web Technology Specialist Bob Bertsch.
