Snapchat has made it convenient for users to share YouTube videos within their snap or story by eliminating the need to copy, paste, and attach the video as a link. The feature is accessible on both Android and iOS.
All you have to do now is go to the YouTube video you want to share, click the “Share” option, and then choose “Snapchat.” Snapchat will launch, and the video will instantly appear in your camera as its own sticker, displaying the video’s name, thumbnail, and author. After taking your photo or video, you may experiment with the sticker’s size, rotation, and placement on the screen. Any viewer of your snap or story can open the link to watch the video in their YouTube app or web browser.
If you’ve ever attempted to add a YouTube video to Snapchat previously, you’ll remember needing to copy the link from YouTube and then open Snapchat, where you’d capture your photo or video, tap the paperclip button, and then paste the link in. The video would be shown as a resizable poster, with a tiny image and the title of the video clip.
You may still upload YouTube videos in the old manner, but it isn’t as visually appealing as this new YouTube-specific sticker. The new sticker provides a sharper view of the video’s thumbnail and displays the name of the author behind the video, whereas the old link format did not. In 2020, Snapchat created a similar sticker for sharing tweets on your snap or story.
