The FIFA World Cup concluded this weekend, and if you are a YouTube TV subscriber who experienced issues while trying to stream the global event, you were not alone. Interruptions were experienced by subscribers, later confirmed to be an outage. This is the first time Google’s YouTube TV service has experienced any kind of outage for its users, though it didn’t last long.
Like Google Chrome, YouTube will now have an incognito mode. It will work similarly but for different reasons and is part of a new update rolling out as we speak in many places for many users. The new mode is being added into the YouTube mobile app on Android first, but will reach iOS and other devices soon.
Instagram is going right for competitors in unfamiliar territory having announced a video service today. IGTV is a long-form video platform that will roll out in the “next few weeks” on Android and iOS devices. Instagram has been forward thinking with recent app updates, but prepare yourself for a taste of something new that could pave way for the future.
Early this week, we informed you about the timing of Google’s YouTube Music service and everything we know about it. The update that will be “major,” began its roll out yesterday and updates the current YouTube Music application.
Google did not announce the rumored YouTube Remix service at Google I/O 2018. However, since the event, the search giant has introduced more tech as if it wanted to spread things out over the month of May. In perhaps the biggest announcement by Google since the conference, we learned about YouTube Music and YouTube Premium. Here’s everything we know thus far.
We report on YouTube TV quite often, but this time we’re not about to talk about another coverage expansion (though that could also happen soon). Google is pushing an update to the service with a voice remote function so users can search and change the volume using their voice.
Google’s Play Music service isn’t the most popular in the growing market for music-streaming services. It is one of the few services by Google that has seen decline over recent years, but Google has kept it around for those loyal to the Google Play suite of apps. But this may not be the case for much longer according to trusted sources familiar with Google’s plans for next month.
It has been a few months since the last expansion, but Google’s YouTube TV service is going live in new markets this week.
