The YouTube TV app now magically connects to the YouTube app on your phone


YouTube today announces an exciting new feature, which could be very useful for those who have a YouTube app on their TV.

Before, to use your phone to control this app, you had to go the Cast route, and that was clunky. Also, while it worked when you found a video on your phone and wanted to watch it on your TV, you couldn’t automatically get details about the video playing on your phone’s TV unless you cast it.

That’s what changes. Launching today, the new feature allows you to effortlessly connect the YouTube app on your TV to the YouTube app on your iPhone or Android phone, without further streaming. It’s also fully synced, so you’ll always get details about the video currently playing on your TV in the YouTube app on your phone.

Is that how it works. Launch the YouTube app on your TV, then open the YouTube app on your phone. By the way, both of you need to log in to the same account. Once you open the phone app, you will see a popup message appear and all you have to do is tap connect. Once you do that, both apps will be connected and always in sync with each other.

So you can use your phone’s keyboard to search for things to watch on TV, or you can comment on your phone on a video you’re currently watching on your TV, or you can check the description on your phone of a video you’re watching . I am watching on television. It’s complicated to explain in text, but it should make instant intuitive sense once you get the new feature, and it’s likely to be one of those we’ll all be wondering how we ever lived without.

As with anything from Google, it can take some time to implement. It’s not clear if this is a server-side implementation or if you’ll need to get an update to the YouTube app on your phone, but either way, you should get that new feature soon. And YouTube is also already working on other things related to interactivity in the room. For example, it’s testing new designs for the video watch page “to help integrate more features unique to YouTube, like browsing and buying products featured in videos,” shown in the video image above.
