The newest service to face discontinuation by Google is the video response system from YouTube. Google has decided that the feature will be axed on September 12 this year. A very low percentage of uptake of less than 0.0004 percent has forced Google to axe the feature from YouTube.
The team is focused on enabling you to share video links in comments. Doing this in comments will let creators and viewers add more context to a video, and more context should drive more engagement. In the meantime, you can continue to encourage fans to upload videos with specific titles, hashtags or descriptions (e.g., Video Response To Taylor Swift's Video "22"), so you can find these by searching for them. If you want to highlight them, you can use playlists and channel sections instead of displaying these videos below yours. Any video responses you or your fans have made will still be available and discoverable.http://thenextweb.com/google/2013/08/28/google-is-removing-video-responses-on-youtube-from-september-12-due-to-low-engagement/
