Canadians first to get new YouTube mobile feature that makes sharing videos more social

This has been invite only since last year, but now Canadians will have it enabled by default in the Android or iOS YouTube app.

Why Canada?

"We wanted to start with Canada because Canadians are sharing 15 per cent more videos than the average user, so it’s interesting to see this is actually a behaviour that happens more in Canada,” +Shimrit Ben-Yair, San Francisco-based product manager for Google — which owns YouTube — who headed up the project, said in an exclusive interview. “We launched this feature as an experiment last year (to a small group) and now we are rolling it out worldwide."
