YouTube updates TV app

YouTube is updating its app for TV, with Microsoft’s Xbox One game console receiving the new version first.

The Google-owned video sharing site has already launched the Xbox One update and the new version of the app will be rolled out to other streaming devices over the coming weeks.

The new version of the TV app features a guide on the left hand side that is in line with the guide already available on computers, phones and tablets.

Users signing in will be able to access videos from their subscriptions and recommendations in the What to Watch section, or turn on a playlist they have created or saved. The update also features channel pages that are populated with new playlists from YouTube content creators.
