Share a YouTube Video from Your Smartphone

Got the question the other day “How can I share a YouTube video through text (messaging on my smartphone)?”

There's two ways to do this on Android smartphones and iPhones - through the web or through the YouTube App.

YouTube App

Download the free YouTube app at the Google Play Store or the App Store.

Find your video and and tap on it. The “share” icon will display in the upper right:













You will get options to share the video through whatever apps you have on your phone. In the case of the person who asked how to share a YouTube video via text messaging, she would've chosen the option "Messaging" on her Android phone.

send video through test














Some more options to sharing, after scrolling:

Sharing via text messaging on iPhone:

share from iphone














Sharing YouTube Videos by Web

If you prefer to not use the app, you can also share a video through the web on your phone. Find your YouTube video and press on the title and hold for few seconds. You should get a menu to copy the link address. Head over to the app you want to use to send the video and then paste the link in.
