YouTube Connect App To Get You Streaming
As if there were not enough streaming apps for everyone, Google once again sees the market as uncharted territory and decides to go for a land grab.
A new app, derived from YouTube and so far called YouTube Connect is reportedly being worked on both for Android and iOS.
While this may seem like a proper answer for Mountain View, it's barely groundbreaking to say that the competitors offer the same range of options, so YouTube Connect better have a kicker.
The good thing about the coming app is that you don't have to create yet another user profile that will occupy a special place in your inbox along with hundreds of other signup forms. Being a Google product, Connect will let you log in with your Google and YouTube accounts and get streaming, right away.
Other options the app is expected to provide include:
- viewing your friends' news feed;
- managing your subscribed-to channels.
While Connect is positioned as a new move for YouTube, like Periscope was for Twitter,the trick was up their sleeve for a while now as live streaming for channels dates back to 2013, and it's a focus in the dedicated YouTube Gaming app.
Let's all hope the app will be more successful than Google Plus and that we will soon get another great addition to the host of streaming apps.
