thumbnail

On Monday, YouTube announced its new sharing feature for at least the third time (that’s not an exaggeration), suggesting that it was finally rolling out to everyone. I still didn’t get access until Tim invited me yesterday, but it is readily available now to everyone even if you need a bit of help.

The YouTube for Android TV app was updated to version 2.0 last month, with an all-new interface and changes to the video player.

Where’s Portland, Google?   Those new markets join Chicago, LA, NYC, Philly, and San Francisco.
