Youtube is the most consumed video platform available in the market. The major contributing factors are lightning-fast servers, high-quality content from all genres, and available in most of the local languages. So being famous, it is also shared over different platforms such as social media, forums, websites, and smartphone applications. Sharing videos has always been the best way to connect your emotions.
When you think of sharing a video with someone, you don’t want to share the entire video content. You want specific timing of video to be shared with whom you are sharing. If you have something like this in your mind, then youtube has already integrated this feature in browsers, but don’t worry, we have a workaround for the youtube app also.
