Google To Disable Youtube Messaging Feature from September 18

Google announced that it will soon turn off YouTube private messaging. This decision is for two reasons. 1) Not many people use YouTube Messaging. 2) Most children are using this feature, which brings them security issues.

However, this time, executives have stepped in and are looking for a solution.
