Next month, the video-sharing app Youtube, will turn off or delete the direct messages on all of the platforms.
Such as Android, iOS and desktop. It’s planned for September 18, Youtube will focus on public chats or comments in the future.
As reported from goto5google, Youtube said they continue to learn the habits of the users when interacting, and what are their priorities.
So after evaluating, Youtube has decided to stop the direct message feature and focus on the increasing public conversation.
If the user is using a desktop, the user can copy and paste the link to the favored messaging app.
Yet, Youtube does not specify what is their reason for turning off this feature.
Still, Youtube also does not argue that the direct message feature in the app does not seem so popular and is rarely used.
