When you're watching a video with a song you love, click "Show more" beneath the video for the song's name, artist, writers, licensors and a link to the official artist channel or music video when available.

The new feature makes ID'ing music easier, but it also helps credit the artists and labels behind the music. It's an expansion of the current Content ID system, which makes it easier for creators to claim ownership of their content.

YouTube direct messaging moves from mobile to desktop .
YouTube has been flirting with in-app messaging for a bit on mobile, and now it's finally ready to roll out private video messaging to the web.

Click it and you'll find a new way to share videos on the platform.Now, this makes less of an impact on desktop where copy and pasting (or reflexively right-clicking on the player for a timestamp code) is super simple, than it does mobile.
