Google updated the YouTube app for Google TV and it will see the addition of YouTube channel pages to make it simpler for users to stumble on the content & will give viewers more control over their internet-TV experience.
“First you’ll notice the app works faster with smoother navigation for a better experience. Next, we’ve added a new feature called Discover, which lets you browse YouTube channels by categories.
Whether you’re looking for hilarious comedy, delectable cooking content, or the latest news, you can find great channels for any of your interests,” said Google product manager Jurek Foryciarz in a February 12 post on the Google TV blog.
Google is pushing forward with its goal of marrying web-based content viewing with live TV and — more importantly for viewers — making it easier to sit back and enjoy the content without the need to constantly interact with the remote.
In order to bring YouTube to Google TV, Google has integrated with some smart TV makers counting LG, Sony and Samsung to produce hardware beneath the Google TV brand (Google TVs made by LG and Samsung have been declared but are yet to arrive on the market), though Google’s YouTube app is accessible on several Smart TV podiums.
The new improved YouTube app for Google TV is all set to touch the viewers and will be accessible throughout the Android market within next few days- AFP/Relaxnews
