Google's Uptime App Promotes Collaborative YouTube Viewing

Now the app is only available for iOS users, and there's no word if Android users will ever get the app. Google opened Area 120 to encourage its employees to use 20 percent of their time to work on side projects and start their own companies, so there's no telling how much support Uptime will receive over time.

Google's YouTube is getting more social with a new app that lets you watch videos on the video streaming website with friends.

It's quite simple to use. Registering now requires an invitation code, and PIZZA should get you in. Spotted by The Verge, the application allows users to share and watch YouTube videos with other users in real-time.

You can comment in real time on prerecorded videos with Uptime. You can also share clips from YouTube within the app, and follow people to see what they're watching. However, if you have Google's new iPhone app installed on your device, called Uptime, then defiantly you can achieve wonders. The app is also created to in such a way that you can't add text or post reactions to videos when your phone is rotated in 90 degrees. While watching a video on Uptime, your profile picture pulls a tinkerbell-like stunt and floats above the video.

In February, Google launched YouTube Go; an app designed specifically to serve the interest of YouTube users in countries with low internet bandwidth like India. Reactions are displayed to anyone who watches the video, including those who watch it later. If you're watching a video using YouTube, no one will be able to see what you're watching.

These particular emojis and comments will be visible to everyone who watches those videos later.

Google's got a brand new app that's focused on video. Once you download the app, you'll need to sign in with a Google account.
