Snapchat has now made it easier to share YouTube videos across Android and iOS devices directly via its camera. You will no longer have to copy and paste the link, saving you precious few moments you could have used to perhaps make a new snap.
No More Manual Copy Paste
Previously, if you stumbled upon a YouTube video you wanted to share on Snapchat, you would have to first manually copy the link and then open Snapchat. Then you would have to attach the link to your image or video by selecting the paperclip icon. The YouTube video would show up as a resizeable banner accompanied by a thumbnail and the title.

Snapchat’s new YouTube sticker will help you share videos in a snap. Moreover, it’s more aesthetically pleasing than the simple thumbnail + title combo that used to appear on the app. This new feature will allow you to share YouTube clips to Stories and one-on-one Snaps by letting you access the Camera and full suite of Snapchat Creative Tools. The new YouTube stickers are tappable, which means that you can view the video within the YouTube app or in any mobile browser.
How To Share YouTube Links On Snapchat
Sharing YouTube videos on the app is much simpler now. Here’s how to do it:
- Head over to the YouTube app and choose a video.
- Select Share and tap the Snapchat. This will launch the Snapchat Camera.
- You can create a new Snap with the automated YouTube sticker. Furthermore, you can get creative and layer on the app’s creative tools.
- The recipients of the Snap can tap the YouTube Sticker to view the video either in the YouTube app or their preferred mobile browser.
This new feature is a fun addition to the app, as it makes it more convenient to interact with the shared YouTube video via the Snapchat camera. The new update has been rolled out for all Android and iPhone users, assuming you have the latest version of the app. If you’re still unable to view it, try reinstalling it.
