YouTube Leanback App for Android Devices Rolled Out

November 10, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

YouTube has released a new Android application that provides remote control functions for its Leanback interface. The new Leanback application is currently available as a free download from the Android Market.

The new app will let users control the YouTube Leanback application running on desktops and Google TV from their Android smartphones.

For enjoying the facility provided by the new app, you just have to log into your YouTube account from your YouTube Remote app and log into the same account on YouTube Leanback on the PC or TV. After that, you can sit relax on your couch and browse the videos that you want to watch on your Android YouTube Remote app and queue them up to play on your TV for a larger screen experience just by tapping.

But the new app is currently in beta and contains new and experimental features that are not provided in the other YouTube app for Android.

The company has asked everyone to give their feedback and help it improve the product. The company has promised that it will integrate the best features from this beta app into the official YouTube Android app in the coming months. You can give your feedback and suggestions here.

The new application comes after Logitech released its Logitech Harmony Android app. While YouTube Remote manages Leanback alone, the Logitech app lets users turn their TVs, set-top boxes and A/V receivers off and on, change channels, and navigate applications and other Google TV content.
