YouTube Announces Leanback For TV-Like Video Streaming
This latest move coincides with Google's effort to migrate Internet-uploaded video content to television sets.
YouTube announced Leanback earlier this week; a program that makes its user-uploaded videos more closely imitate the functionality of television sets. Leanback is a constant stream of videos with YouTube formulating a playlist of the ensuing clips through favorited content. YouTube picks recommendations, but viewers can manually navigate through the videos by browsing by genre.
Google has big plans for inserting themselves into your living room, and this latest move from YouTube corresponds to the push for Google TV.
