Share

YouTube has announced improvements to its app for TVs – which it claims will make accessing its content on the big screen easier than ever.

Essentially the changes appear to be to make the app mirror the apps on mobile platforms and the web – introducing a left-hand sidebar “Guide”, which gives the user access to their subscriptions, recommendations, “watch later” videos and so on.

YouTube produced a video showing off some of changes:
