In recent times we’ve seen how YouTube has attempted to be more social, such as allowing creators to upload photos that lets their subscribers keep up to date on their ongoings. Not too long ago YouTube also rolled out an in-app messaging system for its mobile app, where users could message each other directly.

Now the good news is that if this was a feature that you were looking forward to, you’ll be pleased to learn that 9to5Google is reporting that YouTube for the web is also getting this new direct messaging feature. While not necessarily designed to be a place for users to chat, it does let users share videos with other users and have a discussion about it.

Of course YouTube already lets you share videos through various social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or even embedding on websites. However with this direct messaging feature, it allows users to share videos privately, which might be useful if you’ve YouTube already open on your computer and want to share it with one of your contacts.

Note that not all users are seeing this new function available yet, so it is possible that its availability is being rolled out gradually, so not to worry as we’re sure it will eventually reach you soon.
