Google’s got a brand new app that is focused on video.
As for Uptime, it’s an app that lets you share YouTube videos with friends, watch them in real-time together, and chat with each other at the same time. You can also engage with your friends while watching a video with sparkles, stickers and hearts when you tap your screen.
The home screen of the Uptime app shows you videos that have been shared and liked by the people that you follow.
This new Uptime app is an interesting experiment, making it easy to watch videos in real-time with your friends while also chatting and sharing your reactions with them. It’s kind of strange to see an app that focuses on watching YouTube videos that’s not integrated with YouTube but that’s likely because the app is a result of Google’s Area 120 incubator.
