Experimental App.”UPTIME”launched by youtube for watching with friends

Dear readers, hoping your good health, I am sharing my latest information that youtube has launched Uptime, an app that lets you watch videos together with your friends. The app is initially available only for iOS devices, and it feels very different from the standard YouTube experience.The app was initially spotted by The Verge, which notes that it works best for vertical videos.You can search and share video clips from YouTube to the app to Uptime, making it discoverable by others. A checkbox lets you also notify your friends on the service when you post. Right now, you may not have too many friends using the app, and there isn’t an address book sync feature or ability to import from other social networks — you can only send invites to friends.While  watching a video, your profile icon floats across the screen, and you can comment on the video or post emoji like the smiley face, surprised face, heart eyes, angry face, etc. These reactions will be displayed to anyone who watches the video, even if they’re watching at a later time. However, you also can tap on the screen to leave “sparkles” on the video itself, and these are only shown to those you’re watching with in real time.

It also doesn’t support live streaming, but this and other features could be added if its creators continue its development and experiment with different types of content.

Uptime is currently in invite-only mode, but the invite code “pizza” gets you in.

Hope it will be of some use.
