Smash that like button!

YouTube is one of Google’s most important businesses, but it didn’t get much attention at I/O this year.

Here’s what’s new.

How is YouTube changing in 2018?

Nothing about YouTube is really changing, but you’ll be able to watch YouTube TV on the upcoming Smart Displays. The Smart Displays have already been shown to handle video calls, music playback, Assistant queries and more. The addition of YouTube TV makes the Smart Displays that  [Read More…]

Google News to be revamped with elements from Play Newsstand and YouTube

The new app may be announced at I/O next week.

Amidst all of the Android P talk at Google I/O next week, one topic that’s said to come up is Google News.

YouTube Remix will reportedly kill Google Play Music

The arrival of YouTube Remix (or revamped YouTube Music) later this year might mean we’ll have to say goodbye to Google Play Music.

The post YouTube Remix will reportedly kill Google Play Music appeared first on AndroidGuys.

YouTube Remix may usher in the demise of Google Play Music

Back in December, we heard that YouTube was working on its own streaming music option. At the time, the team had already secured a deal with at least one major label, and the report indicated that they were working on securing the other labels as well. There were some questions regarding the future of Google Play Music, since it didn’t seem likely that Google would need two streaming music services out there.

Now Droid-Life has a report that aims to shed  [Read More…]

Google Play Music might be killed off this year in favor of YouTube Remix

Users are said to be forced off Play Music by the end of the year.

Right now, the state of Google’s music streaming services is a bit of a mess. Google Play Music is the company’s most notable player, but you can also listen to tunes and watch music videos via YouTube Red. If you’re on mobile, you can separately download the YouTube Music app that also comes with a Play Music/YouTube Red subscription. This jumble of services isn’t  [Read More…]

The future of Android TV is less hardware, more YouTube TV

Take the Chromecast and make it smarter, maybe with a remote control for those in need.

We’re rapidly approaching that time of year where we hear more about what Google wants the next stage of its platforms to look and feel like. While all eyes are focused on the next flavor of Android on phones and tablets (and maybe even Chromebooks) you can bet Google is going to continue its efforts in the living room. While Google’s  [Read More…]

How to stream Android games to YouTube and Twitch

Why just play games on your phone when you could be streaming, too.

If you’re not among the millions of people logging in to Twitch or YouTube Gaming to watch other people playing video games, you may not understand the trend. Back in my day, I hated having to wait my turn to play a video game with friends.

These days, record numbers of people are watching Twitch streamers play all the most popular games — Fortnite  [Read More…]

How to turn off autoplay videos in the YouTube app

If autoplay videos aren’t for you, this is how you can disable them.

Autoplay videos. That’s a phrase we’ve learned to loathe over the years, and like it or not, they’re now making their way to more and more users in the Android YouTube app.

Google began testing automatically-playing videos on the homepage of YouTube for Android users last October, but this feature recently started being more widely released. It’s not very obtrusive seeing as how subtitles  [Read More…]

YouTube TV can now be streamed on Firefox

Still no support for Safari or Edge.

YouTube TV has become one of the top names in the world of live television streaming, and one of the service’s main goals last year was supporting more and more platforms. Keeping that trend alive, YouTube TV is finally adding support for its second desktop web browser.

Since launch, YouTube TV has only been viewable on a computer while using Google Chrome. This sort of made sense considering Google’s ownership  [Read More…]
