Getting the Message: Communicating Content and Ideas
It's all about communicating your digital content and ideas with messaging apps. Messaging apps are allowing digital content to be included and digital content platforms are including messaging also. Content and communication are merging.
Times of India reports that YouTube is 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. The messaging option announced Friday initially is only being offered to a small group of people with YouTube 's app installed on an iPhone or device running on Google's Android software. If all goes well, messaging will be included in a future app update available to everyone with an iPhone or an Android phone.
YouTube, part of Alphabet Inc.'s Google, is examining whether the messaging feature will encourage its audience to spend even more time inside its popular video app. Currently, people typically copy links to YouTube and paste them into text messages or other messaging apps such as Snapchat , Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp .
