Googlers Made This Social Video App For iPhone

Google's Uptime app is a more social way to watch YouTube videos Google staff have created an iPhone-only app to watch YouTube videos with your friends

Uptime came out of Area 120, a Google-led incubator based off the tech company's philosophy that its employees should spend 20% of their time working on compelling side projects. And while Uptime is very much separate from the rest of Google and YouTube, it's easy to see how some of these features might eventually find their way into the core YouTube experience.

The latest comer to the social media app business is Google's Uptime; an app which lets you watch videos with your friends or family in real time, share your remarks or chat with them during it.

It's quite simple to use.

The app is free to download and has the invite code PIZZA. Furthermore, you have the option to curate a list of favorite YouTube videos which you can then share with your friends. Uptime is created to let multiple users watch and comment on YouTube videos together. You can add comments and reactions to the video in a mix between live streaming and a traditional video. These engagements are all saved for future reference, so when a friend watches that same video, even at a later date, they'll be able to see what you thought of it. The app is now invite-only and iOS-exclusive.

Google has released a new iPhone-only app called Uptime.

Uptime seems to marry reactive features of Facebook Live videos with social video watching and sharing.

Google has given us a way to essentially have YouTube parties - from an app. Users can also label the video they send to friends with a caption that lets them know what they thought of the video. You can also chose to leave sparkles, that are visible only to folks who are watching that particular video at that particular instance.
