YouTube was the company that pioneered and popularized video streaming. They have been in the game longer than most. And have continually innovated.

For this reason, you need to get the official YouTube mobile app and find out what the world is watching.

It’s possible to discover the hottest music video and what’s trending from your smartphone or tablet. Or track down that how-to video tutorial you need, be it a recipe or helping with a software or hardware problem.

What you can rely on is that no matter the subject, there’s almost guaranteed someone has made a video about it. Quite often, hundreds.

A recent design refresh has made the app even more accessible and fast to find and explore video content. And if you subscribe and ‘ring the bell’ for notifications, you will never miss videos from your favorite creators.


YouTube launches new sports channel

YouTube announced that it had overhauled its sports channel to better cater for digital-first fans.

They unveiled their new look channel by highlighting that it is more immersive for sports fans. They can now interact with the best sports content, view clips and highlights from all the top leagues globally, watch exclusive live matches, and access premium content from top athletes and creators.

The redesign aimed to make YouTube a more personalized destination for sports. There was also much more emphasis on ‘off-the-pitch’ content to give more context to in-game action.
