YouTube aims to improve TV watching experience – rolls out an update for mobile app

With over 2 billion monthly active users, YouTube is always on its feet to bring out features that would enhance its user’s experience. Whether you are a viewer of the video-streaming platform or a creator, YouTube caters efficiently to every demand, regardless of the device you are using.

Just recently, YouTube published a blog post on its community forum where they highlighted the features they introduced to its mobile app this year. One of the most predominant and useful features in the list was the integration of voice search, even when the phone is casting to a TV.

Compatible with both – iOS and Android devices, the feature enables users to make voice searches through the smartphone and view the content on their TV. According to the Google-owned company, the feature now also allows users to watch videos in HDR while streaming from PlayStation 4 and its Pro versions.

Reportedly, the platform is also working on improvements for its Android app. As per a report by the German-based publication, SmartDroid – some Android YouTube users can find their mobile app to mimic a remote controller while casting. Additionally, the update involves a directional pad that makes it easy to find videos on YouTube’s extensive database.

At this time, the changes may seem minute and limited for the audience who utilizes the app to enhance their TV experience. However, in the long-term, the protocol would make the transition from phone to TV and back again to the phone as seamless as possible.
