Why message someone on Youtube?

Most of the youtube users connect with each other by comments on videos uploaded. But sometimes the users need to contact or send the message in private to channel owner and don’t know how to message the channel owner on youtube.

In previous time or I may say the time before July 2018 it might be easy to send the message on youtube. Because there was an option or an icon of messaging given in the “About” section on the YouTube channel.

But now in the present time, that option is removed, sending a message on YouTube is quite difficult now.

  • How to send a message to the YouTube channel owner.

Previously that was simple in easy steps like below-

  1. Open YouTube.
  2. Find the channel.
  3. Go in the “About” section.
  4. See the message icon or option, click on it
  5. Then send the message to the owner

See how easy it was, but now  YouTube messaging has turned into Business Enquiry Emails.

Now as per the Google guidelines, it is suggested that there is the only way on YouTube for personal chatting or messaging which is by using the Business Enquiry Emails.

This is done in a few steps:  –

  1. Open YouTube.
  2. Search the YouTube channel and click on it.
  3. In the channel, section go to the “About” section.                                                                                                                  About in youtube
  4. In the “About” section you will see the “Details” icon click on it.                                                                                            send a message on youtube
  5. After this, the “View Email Address” option must appear, click on it.
  6. A quick captcha box will be shown after this for security purpose tick the box of “I am not a Robot” and then click on the “Submit” icon.                                                                                                                                                          Confirmation
  7. Then the email ID pf the channel owner appears.                                                                                                                  Provided email
  8. Copy the Email address and contact the channel owner by using your default email method.

There is also an alternate method –

Also, in the “About” page there is an option “Link”. In this, the channel owners mostly provide their other social media mediums. So, you can use that medium to contact them in private.



  • How to send Message to your YouTube friend.

From the last year, YouTube is providing messaging features. This has the features that, users can now chat with their knowns or friends just like any other messaging service.
