YouTube TV App For Android TV, Apple TV, And Xbox One Launched

It goes without saying that YouTube is the largest video streaming website, acquired by Google in 2006, the platform has only added more feather to its hat. The app will hit smart TVs from Samsung and Sony and Apple TV "in the coming weeks".

As of last month, YouTube TV is now available in all top 50 metro areas, covering two-thirds of the USA, according to Google. Google said that Amazon's "implementation of YouTube on the Echo Show violates our terms of service, creating a broken user experience".

Details around launch plans for other TV platforms, like Fire TV and Roku, aren't available.

Since YouTube TV will be integrated into the above devices, you will be able to use your TV's remote control or your Xbox One wireless controller to browse and search for content instead of having to rely on your smartphone or tablet.

The app comes with a personalized "home" feed that combines live TV recommendations with DVR recordings into a single feed meant to be tailored to your interests.

For a more cinematic look, we made the background dark on your TVs.

The new YouTube TV app allows you to pull up the player controls and navigate to your Home, Live and Library tabs without having the video that's now playing turn off. However, until now, the company didn't release an app that would make YouTube TV available on television. The app includes a variety of new features, such as the ability to pick up where you left off with a program on another streaming device and a "background playback" feature that allows you to search through different streaming titles while the live programming you were watching continues to play in the background.

Google is also aggressively promoting its new TV streaming service.
