Send Timestamped YouTube Links


Timestamped allows you to specify a start time for a video on YouTube and then send the timestamped YouTube video via Messages.

The process is incredibly simple:

  1. In the YouTube app while watching a video, tap ‘Share’
  2. Scroll to the right and select ‘More’
  3. Select ‘Timestamped’ from the share sheet
  4. Enter the time (in h:mm:ss format) you want the video to start playing for the message recipient(s)
  5. Select recipient(s)

That’s it! When the recipient(s) tap on the link in Messages, the video will begin playing at the timestamp you specified!
