Google began teasing of an update for Google TV on Facebook yesterday. And well, it looks like that update has since been announced — the YouTube channel has been updated. Yup, those with a Google TV can fire up their unit and download the latest YouTube channel from the Android Market. Google makes mention that this update arrives with some “big improvements.” That being said, some of the goodies that were mentioned include how the app now “works faster with smoother navigation.” Otherwise, the key features and changes include new channel pages, the ability to see related videos and more videos from the same user a bit easier and the ability to thumbs up a video, leave a comment for a video or add a video to a playlist using the Info screen (all from your remote). And lastly, Google also added in a new feature called Discover which is described as being a way to “browse YouTube channels by categories.”
