I have been thisentertained by an application as I did with the Leanback version of You Tube by Google. The application works in an impressive and interesting way. When you log into your YouTube account, the application picks up videos that you might want to watch and endlessly plays them in HD.
Google TV in the Making
The application allows you to watch your videos like you are watching TV, in other words you do not have to search for videos to play them every time you want to watch. But of course you can still search if you want to. You Tube has come with this new applications that makes using it more like watching your TV set, with the improved version of the Leanback service offering. According to You Tube, the new app. will give videos viewers’ uninterrupted videos with regard to their preferences. Apparently, this app. is a test drive for the company’s experimental site, TestTube. It is expected to pick up users preferences in videos and offer videos that match those preferences and viewer habits, in a continuous video feed.
The company’s senior manager reiterated the quality of the applications stating that it is meant to let viewers “sit back, relax and be entertained.” You Tube has its eyes set on offering the new Leanback version as a package as it plans to launch the Google TV platform in the coming few months. Additionally, it will be available as a package for internet enabled gadgets, mobile phones and gaming consoles as well. The recent YouTube Leanback comes as a redone version of its existing, old homepage and is be made up of a larger window with a feed choice of video files that geared towards your preferences and interests and are shown as thumbnails. What makes the technology even more interesting is the automatic play of the videos you like soon as you are on YouTube. The moment you enter the page, your favorite videos that match your tastes will commence play almost immediately. This application is Google’s TV interface and works more like your TV as it eliminates the need to click and search for videos.
The new Leanback application will come as a great addition to mobile phones users. It makes use of HTML5 to provide a mobile site that will encompass better video quality with additional content when compared to the old You Tube functionality. The app can work on most smartphones but You Tube’s Leanback for TV is what is currently riding high. Now with your PC, you can sit back and watch You Tube videos like you are watching TV as the application is optimized for watching videos on your TV. What began as a preview at Google’s I/O will now be encompassed into its long time project, Google TV when it is introduced to the market in the coming months.
Whereas its evolution began in 2009 with the introduction of the You Tube XL interface, the overall feel for was not palpable to those who surf under the comfort of their couches. Leanback has successfully taken that challenge and made it amazingly better.
