Welcome to Android Central! Are you talking about the official YouTube, or some 3rd party downloader app called U-Tube? And do you mean Facebook Messenger or Google Messenger?

I think downloading a YouTube video violates the terms of services, which is why you can't find any of those kinds of 3rd party downloader apps on Google Play Store.

Streaming a Youtube video is allowed, saving that stream as a file (which is all downloading is - you save it instead of watching it) is a violation of the TOS. Sending it to someone else is also a violation of someone's copyright (I don't know if Facebook claims copyright to everything on the site or allows the uploader to maintain copyright, but the downloader sure doesn't have any rights to make copies).
