YouTube for iOS updated, adds support for live streaming
The YouTube for iOS app has been updated to version 1.3 and it brings a couple of interesting features for users. One new feature allows you to more quickly find and view videos uploaded by channels that you subscribe to. Another new feature lets you watch live streams in the app. This would have been perfect for this past weekend when some of the Coachella music festival was streamed via YouTube.

The YouTube for iOS update now includes a way to queue up videos to play later over a television set. This feature has already been included on the Android version. Considering that Google owns YouTube, you have to expect that the Android app is going to be ahead of the iOS version. But with this update, the gap between them is smaller.

No need, we have been able to do this for quite some time. Unlike apple novelties we can do it right from the browser since we have a REAL browser.

Ya but you know you would take if you could. I personally hate youtube for ios. I have crazy fast lte in my area and it still buffers constantly

What? Why would he when he clearly said you can watch yt on a standard Android browser just fine, therefore negating the need to use an app. If a website I frequent has an app or mobile version I choose the browser every single time. This is just apple playing catch up yet again and passing it off as revolutionary.

Adds live streaming with the app now? And some genius said iPhone is smartphone.
