YouTube is a video-sharing website which was created in 2005. It’s owned by Google which bought it back in November 2006. As of July 2018, YouTube has over 1.9 billion users (including inactive and unique accounts. More than one billion hours of content are watched each day on YouTube. This makes it the world’s most popular video sharing site, and arguably the largest user-generated content platform. YouTube allows video publishers to upload, view, rate, share, add to favorites, report, comment on videos and display ads.
Slack is a cloud-based team cplaboration top that offers messaging and archiving services. It was created in 2009 by Stewart Butterfield. As of January 2018, Slack has over 8 million daily active users. The majority of Slack’s revenue comes from paid subscriptions.
YouTube and Slack have been integrating themselves for quite some time now and the integration is very successful. Slack has decided to add a YouTube icon right next to its your profile picture which reveals a menu with all the videos you have uploaded on YouTube. Next to the videos you can also see another icon that will give you the access to the YouTube app of Slack itself. What this means is that if you are watching a video on your desktop through the Slack app, you can pause it and watch it on your mobile device or let it play in the background while you do other things on your phone. If you have a tablet then you can use the same app on your tablet as well. You can also click on a video and start watching it instantly without having to leave the Slack app. When you click on the icon of the video and press play, the video will open in full screen mode inside the Slack app.
The integration between these two apps also offers other benefits to both users. For example if you are working on something related to a certain topic but don’t remember where exactly you saw it, all you need to do is search for it on YouTube which is directly integrated into Slack and then watch it on your mobile device or tablet while continuing work on your desktop computer or laptop. This saves time and effort spent on finding a video or article and reading or watching it again. In addition, this way of viewing videos allows for better concentration because you are not distracted by other things while you are trying to focus on an important task at work or schop. For example, when using YouTube in a browser or a separate app, if you accidentally get distracted by some other notification or message, your brain will take longer to go back to focusing on the task at hand. This happens because your brain is processing information about the other notification instead of focusing on the task at hand. However, when watching the same video in a Slack pop-up window that takes up all of your screen, there is no chance of getting distracted by anything else because there is nothing else taking up your attention and consciousness except for the video you want to watch.
The integration of YouTube into Slack provides many benefits for both users and business owners who are trying to get more subscribers and views for their videos and increase their overall productivity and efficiency. For example, if you are making a presentation for schop or work related tasks then you can use YouTube in order to find the right kind of music or images that fit your presentation or work that you are doing. This way you can create more interesting content that helps you get more views on your videos as well as more subscribers and even leads for your company or business as well as helps you get more likes and shares for your content when you post it onto various social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc.. Another benefit of this integration is that before the integration, people had to either go onto Youtube from their browser or download the Youtube app onto their phone or tablet which allowed them to search for videos that were relevant to their needs but not their workflow. Currently, people no longer have to go onto Youtube from their browser or download an app onto their phone or tablet in order to watch and listen to relevant audio or visual content while they are working on something else such as writing an email or making a presentation on their desktop computer or laptop. Instead they can just click on an icon that takes up all of their screen so they are not distracted by any other thing while they try to focus on their main task at hand which is usually related to their job or schop work. With this integration people no longer have to interrupt their workflow in order to watch a video related to what they are doing which is very convenient for everyone who is busy with work or schop assignments and does not want to be distracted by irrelevant things when trying to complete their tasks quickly and effectively.
