Google has announced that YouTube TV is coming to Xbox One. The live TV streaming app has thus far been limited to mobile devices and Chromecast, but Google is now aiming to make a splash on the big screen.
As you'd expect, the TV app will carry over much of the mobile experience, but designed for a larger screen. Like the mobile app, the interface is largely divided up into three tabs for navigation: library, home, and live. However, Google says that it has made the background dark on its TV app for a "more cinematic look." Other features include:
- A new Live guide made for your big screen so you can get a sneak-peek at what's airing soon.
- Never miss the action with our background playback experience built for your big screen.
- Easily pick up where you left off on another device when you get home.
YouTube TV's arrival on Xbox One is part of a larger push that will see big-screen apps launching on Android TV devices, Smart TVs, and Apple TV. It will join other live TV streaming services from the likes of Hulu and Sling TV, both of which have been available on Xbox One for some time. There's currently no set release date, but Google says YouTube TV on Xbox One and other devices will land in "the next few days." Of course, that's if you can access it: The service is currently available in 50 metro areas in the U.S., according to Google.
