    Hello everyone! Something strange happened in the latest version of YouTube app on my phone. Before the newest version, I was able to share a channel. Google have remove this option in the latest version.

    I have check with my friend if he had the same thing. Strangely, he have the latest version of YouTube but he can share a channel. I have check with my old phone and with the latest version, I have the option to share.

    Could youtube modified YouTube app and remove the option to share a channel and sent that version to me?

    Thank you!

    P.S. I took screen shots so you guys can see exactly what I mean and check on your side.

    Thanks for the fast reply mustang7757!

    Yeah, I can share a video too, but if you go to any channel home page and press the three dots on the right for the option, there is no way to share the channel. I was able to do this before this version. My friend and my old phone still have this option with the same version I have...

    Thank you!

    Maybe some countries they took it away , or maybe the VPN causing a conflict?

    Here is an other reason why I'm thinking that Google sent me a modified version of YouTube app in google play.

    I was using a service that was converting any YouTube channel to a podcast.
    podsync dot net

    Podsync doesn't work anymore because Google is blocking their servers.

    So I guess I was doing something illegal.....

    I have saved my subscription password with Podsync with my google account and was using my phone with Chrome to log in on the website.

    Then doing a share from any channel in the YouTube app to copy the link so that I con convert it to a podcast with Podsync.

    So I guess that google know I'm doing this and decided to send me a modified version of YouTube app in google play...


    So Unless someone prove me wrong on that, this is on the table...

    Thanks!!

    Technically, yes. YouTube content is intended for viewing through YouTube, using 3rd-party apps or sites to strip it down for alternate uses is out of compliance with the terms of use for the service. Using the same service and a paid YouTube subscription, someone could "pull" paid content and share it with people that didn't pay for the premium subscription.

    Is that why your one device is different? I don't think it is, but I also don't understand what makes that one device different.

    I checked on my Pixel 2 XL running Android 10 and my Tab S3 running Pie with no YouTube updates showing on either device - I could share a channel from both.

    Thanks for the reply hallux!

    Well yeah I get the illegal youtube podcast.


    The point is, It looks like Google is able to sent modified version of an app on Google Play to a specific user.

    I'm I right or not???

    Let say I'm someone that Google doesn't like and I'm using an encrypted messing software like Signal. Google put a backdoor in the signal app and send it it my devise by Google Play.....


    So far, It looks like this is what they have done to me with YouTube app on my phone.

    I need more proof of that but this is on the table!!

    Hope you guys understand the implication of that!!!

    Thanks!!

    I think you don't understand what is going on here Mustang7757.

    I don't mind adding or removing features of newer versions. What is going on here is that it looks like Google can modified an app and send it to a specific user.

    Prove me wrong here but look @ pictures I did uploaded and the ones you uploaded!

    Again my friend and my old phone and an other person I have check with yesterday all living in the same area with the same version had the option like YOU to share any channel!!

    So unless I'm proving wrong on that. This really seem what is going on...

    Thanks!
