YouTube 6.0 now offers live chat to phones and tablets

Live chatting during YouTube live streams will soon be widely available. Thanks to the recent app update that brings the Live Chat feature to mobile devices. The YouTube 6.0 version now allows live commenting or live chatting when videos are streaming. This isn't actually new because it's already possible on desktop.

This piece of news strengthens the claim that the number of apps available on Amazon Fire TV is now up four times. HBO Go is a great addition especially now that over 1,700 titles are in HBO's archive.
