Well, nowadays, most people do not raise an eyebrow when Google launches an app, but we do hope this one’s different. Google seem like they want to redefine the way people watch YouTube videos as they launch an app that lets you watch YouTube videos together with your friends. Errm, i don’t know why i have a different feeling about this.
So what Google Uptime does basically is to take an existing YouTube video, and makes it more interactive by letting you watch it with your friends. How? You can see where your friends are in a video, time wise as compared to you. You’ll also see reactions in the form of sparkles or different cartoon faces.
SO WHAT DOES GOOGLE UPTIME ALLOW YOU TO DO?
>> share YouTube videos with friends, and then watch them together in real-time.
>> Users can chat with each other, and leave comments and emoji layered on top of the video
>>Follow other users within the app
