It used to be back in the day that one app performed pretty much one task. However given that switching between apps isn’t quite as quick compared to on the PC, swapping between apps can sometimes be slow and troublesome. However for those who use the LINE messenger app, Naver has updated the app to help make sharing YouTube links easier.

In addition to being able to send photos, videos, or voice messages, users will now have the option to share YouTube videos directly within LINE itself. This will send a link to the YouTube video in question to the person you are chatting to, and at the same time it will provide an in-chat video player so that users can watch the video directly without having to leave the app.

It should also be noted that the in-chat video player has been brought over to Android, whereas previously it was only available on the iPhone. In addition to the ability to share YouTube videos quickly and easily, the update will bring about new brushes that users can use to edit their photos with, as well as send comments and send hearts during LINE LIVE broadcasts, which admittedly looks a lot like Instagram’s Live feature.

The update should already be live so head on over either the iTunes App Store or Google Play to get your hands on the update.
