Snapchat now lets you share YouTube videos as stickers in your Snap

Snapchat makes it easier to share YouTube videos within your snap or story so you can complete the process of copying, pasting and attaching the video as a link (via Android Police). The feature is available for both Android and iOS.

Now all you have to do is navigate to YouTube, click the Share button, and then select Snapchat. Snapchat will open and the video will automatically appear in your camera as a custom sticker showing the video’s name, thumbnail, and creator. After capturing your picture or video, you can play around with the size of the sticker, rotate it and place it anywhere on the screen. Anyone viewing your Snap or Story can click the link and watch the video in the YouTube app or in their web browser.

If you’ve ever tried to insert a YouTube video, you’ll probably remember that you had to copy the link from YouTube and then open Snapchat, where you take your photo or video, click the paperclip icon and the link paste (or grant Snapchat access to your clipboard). The video is displayed as a resizable banner that displays a small thumbnail along with the video’s title.

You can still add YouTube videos like this one, but in my opinion it just doesn’t look as aesthetic as this YouTube specific sticker. The new sticker gives you a clearer view of the video’s thumbnail and actually shows you the name of the creator behind the video, whereas the plain old link format omitted this — sometimes crucial — information. Snapchat similarly created a sticker for Twitter in 2020 that saves you from sending screenshots of tweets or god forbid taking a picture of a tweet on your computer screen.

Update from April 2nd 6:48pm ET: Updated to add a screenshot to compare the YouTube sticker in Snapchat to a link to a YouTube video in Snapchat. Snapchat now lets you share YouTube videos as stickers in your Snap
