Good news for Apple TV users. YouTube has announced that it has updated the app so the Apple TV user can enjoy the new look and the new friendlier features of the most popular video streaming website.
Google made an official statement saying the new YouTube app for Apple TV will have a new design, cooler personalized recommendations and even more video content than before. Google said that with the new upgrade the users can watch every YouTube video on their Apple TVs, without any gaps in their video library. However, users are not spared of the annoying ads that keep popping up at the wrong time.
With the upgraded YouTube app for Apple TV, the user gets to enjoy a new predictive search feature, of which Google says that it should simplify the process of finding specific videos. Also, the users can subscribe to any YouTube channel right from the app.
Apple has announced some big news itself. It has just added four new channels to the Apple TV, channels like The Scene, which belongs to Conde Nast. Apple also added Fusion, a news and popular culture channel, the super popular fighting channel called UFC.TV and a YouTube-like video-sharing website called DailyMotion.
The new YouTube app for Apple TV and the latest Apple TV channels are available now and can be seen on the Apple TV where it says “New”.
The cool design of the new YouTube app for Apple TV resembles the YouTube found on other content streaming devices like Roku, meaning that it features cool video thumbnails and other tools for a fast video discovery. The new feature include personalized recommendation based on what the users have previously watched on YouTube, a predictive search and the possibility to subscribe to other channels using the app.
YouTube calls its new app for Apple TV “the full YouTube experience, right from your TV.”
Some complained that Apple hasn’t been updating its Apple TV with any major features, but the new YouTube App proves that Apple TV cares about its users.
Unfortunately, the new YouTube app for Apple TV does not come without those pesty ads.
