Now you can also share the video directly from YouTube. Anyway, both ways have their own advantages in comparison. So here’s how you can share YouTube videos on Snapchat.

Method-2 Attaching the YouTube Link to Snapchat Story

While the previous process is effortless, it adds the link on your snap even before recording the snap. It can be inconvenient to record snaps as the YouTube link always stays on top of it. Also, even in the final result, the added link just takes a lot of space. If you feel the same, you can rely on this second method.

1. Open the YouTube app and search for the video you want to share. Here tap on the three-dot menu and select the Share option.

Regardless of which way you choose, the final snap will include a YouTube link that you can tap to open. However, the process may be a bit different, as in the first method you add the link immediately, while in the second method you add it after taking the snap. So you can choose the method that suits you best.
