Google has updated the YouTube app for iOS with its ‘send to TV’ functionality. This enables the app to send video out on an automatic connectionto TVs that support the open protocol. This update also allows you to send YouTube videos to Xbox and PS3 consoles, but they have to be manually paired. YouTube for iOS also gets support for image recording and uploads by integrating with the YouTube Capture app. There are also improvements for streaming video over slow WiFi connections, something I’ve noticed issues with over the past couple of version. The YouTube app for Android got the Send to TV feature back in November, allowing it to send video to Google TVs. That was then expanded with partnerships with Smart TV makers, allowing Android devices to send to any device that had integrated the function.
