Over the past few years Google has been constantly improving how YouTube videos are played on large widescreen formatted televisions. Today Google entered into new UI that will make finding videos, playing videos, and sorting out you’re subscribed content even easier when using a TV.
Of course there is Chromecast, but now you can use the UI with Chromecast to make life even better while watching and finding videos. As Google describes an official post, “you’ll soon be able to find videos you want more easily with the updated YouTube app for TV designed for the big screen, which will also bring you all the videos and playlists from channels. This update already started with Xbox One, and we’ll roll out the updated app to other streaming devices in the following weeks.”
“When you sign in, you can jump to all the latest videos from your subscriptions and recommendations in the What to Watch section, or pop on a playlist you’ve saved such as Blogilates’ Cardio AB Attack and turn your TV into a workout buddy,” says the company in a statement.
Google has continuously been expanding YouTube’s presence on any screen that supports the service, and this is one more example of how Google plans to reinvent television. You can check out the video above for a sample of the user interface and click the link below to see it in action.
