HTC RE camera can now stream live on YouTube

Do you have dreams of becoming the next YouTube sensation? (and don't laugh at that dream because some of the YT stars earn millions just for people watching their videos). Well, you don't need to have a great set-up at home or in a studio to be able to launch a YT show. The HTC RE camera can now stream live videos to the video channel, so you can bring your show to the Internet even while you're in a mobile setting.

YouTube Kids app now available for Android devices (US only)

Most kids nowadays, particularly those who have Internet access and gadget-toting parents/guardians, have been watching TV shows not on an actual TV anymore but through YouTube. And while the video channel does have filters in place, we all know that "inappropriate" videos slip in every once in a while (okay, a lot of times) when you're not looking or supervising their viewing time. Google has now finally come up with their first app that is built specifically for children: the YouTube Kids app.

YouTube rolls out a new kid’s app

The sheer number of clips on YouTube is astounding and much of the content there is far from appropriate for kids. So far there has been no real way for parents to ensure their kids see only clips they want them to see short of being with them at all times to see what they are watching. Netflix has long had an app just for kids that removes any movie or content not appropriate for children.

Enjoy all the NFL side action on YouTube and Google Search

Last year, the world was gripped by everything football as the 2014 edition of the World Cup was held in Brazil. Google was at the forefront of providing all the action for people who unfortunately couldn't be there in person. Now, it's the time for a different kind of football, as SuperBowl Weekend is almost upon us. Once again, Google wants to provide NFL fans with an easy way to be caught up in all the pre, during and post game goodies.

Streamus extension brings YouTube Music to Chrome

YouTube is great for one for reason and one reason only - hosting a massive amount of videos. Late last year, YouTube launched its music platform which offered subscribers unlimited amounts of music for $7.99 per month. Streamus is the new Chrome extension which gives you the freedom to stream music without having to pay. Search your favorite songs, create playlists, and play songs all day - without ever accessing YouTube directly.

HTC RE camera update will let you stream live to YouTube

Every photo or video needs an audience, whether it be ourselves or others and what better audience is there for an action camera like the HTC RE than a live one? With a firmware update coming tomorrow, HTC's rather odd-looking action camera will be gaining a new ability, allowing users to share their precious memories and moments as they happen with anyone in the world. And by anyone, they mean those who will be tuning in to your live stream performance on YouTube.

Google+ adds Video Auto Enhance feature

Posting videos on Google+ was recently enhanced so the result would be a higher quality video. You know how uploading mobile videos can be done quickly on the social network but they don't always come out nice as the original. Quality would be lower than usual but the Google+ team, as announced by Software Engineer in a post, added some features. The uploader can now edit the color, lighting, stability, and speech in videos. Most of the enhancements are already available but the stability function is coming soon.

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. Google's migration to Hangouts has brought this change so it's really a good thing. Google has not made an official announcement but the updated version is on Google Play.

YouTube app updated with Material Design and Offline feature

Search and watch videos on YouTube now with a new feel and whenever you want. Google has updated the YouTube app which allows you to watch videos offline where there is little to no internet connection and has also worked in the new Material Design. The offline feature is only available in India, Indonesia, and the Philippines as for now. Google is working on updating their other apps as well to fit into the new Material design. Material Design sounds fancy, and it is. It's Android's new facelift with solid vivid colors, shadow textures, more animations, and more things that suggest new look and depth. With the new YouTube update, you can now search videos with filters like you do on the desktop version like: duration, HD, or closed caption. The offline feature only applies to certain videos, but much of those videos are popular YouTube content in India, Indonesia, and the Philippines. A new “offline” icon would appear on the video, where you would tap that to view for later when you don't have connection. The video is saved to watch later for up to 48 hours. You can now plan ahead of time when you know there's low/no internet connection in certain places.
YouTube is changing - and the change is good. Android users must be excited as they have been rolling out the latest Android Lollipop, new Material Design, and now new user interface Google apps. Alongside India, Indonesia, and the Philippines have been the first ones to experience the new offline feature. As stated by Google, the offline feature is just a start. What's in store for us in the future? What would make YouTube “that much better”? [gallery ids="205680,205681,205682,205683"] SOURCE: Google DOWNLOAD: Play Store [timeline]
