Google's New Uptime App Lets People Watch YouTube Together
Google recently released Uptime, an app that lets people share and watch YouTube videos simultaneously from different phones. The idea is to make YouTube (even) more social and interactive. With Uptime installed, people can watch a video, interact and chat, curate favorites, and get daily recommendations together with friends. Interactions include stickers, emoji, and other real-time reactions to videos. Uptime is only available to the iPhone for now. Google hasn't said if or when it will bring Uptime to Android handsets.
