YouTube is currently testing a messaging feature in its smartphone app so people can share and discuss videos without resorting to other ways to connect with their friends and family.

Friends and family who receive a video in the chat-like interface can choose to respond by sending a video of their own, or they can just type out a response or use emoji.

The new messaging option is currently only being offered to a small group of people with YouTube's app installed on iOS or Android.
