Google has announced a New YouTube app that will help in easier content discovery, “in-page playback” and streamlined control for users streaming to their TV.
The app is also introducing new feature called as “Discover” for filtering YouTube channels by categories consisting of comedy, science, cooking, gaming and such other categories. Each channel gives easier access to playlists and individual videos. There is also a “From TV” option showing broadcasted channels.
Users can also subscribe to channels with a single click. Users may scroll through related videos or other videos by the same user while pressing up or down arrows on the remote control.
Once you’ve found a great video, continue to use the up and down arrows on your remote to find the Info screen where you can give the video a thumbs up, add it to one of your YouTube playlists, or leave a comment for the YouTube community.
The app is available free to download by the users in the Android Market on Google TV 2.0 boxes.
