YouTube For GTV Receives Update

Over the next few days, Google will be rolling out an update to its YouTube app for Google TV. You’ll be able to download the update via the Android Marketplace and once you do, you’re in for a big surprise. Some major updates have been made to the appearance and navigation of the app, so you can quickly browse to your favorite content more easily.

In addition, a new features has been added called Discover, which is similar to how the YouTube app on Xbox LIVE works. This feature allows you to browse YouTube videos by their categories, so you’re exposed to more videos in the same category. (Oddly enough, for any Let’s Play watchers out there, there is no YouTube category for video games.)

The channel page has also been updated to take advantage of YouTube’s new layout that allows users to create playlists much easier. These channels can quickly be subscribed and playlists checked out with just a click of a button.

Keep your eyes on your dash for the update, which should be rolling out over the next few days. Like what you see? Let us know how you think Google is doing in the comments.
