YouTube is a video sharing website that was created by three former PayPal employees Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim in February 2005. However, Google has purchased YouTube back in November 2016 for $1.65 billion.
YouTube is available as an application on smart TVs, smartphones and tablets, but it can also be accessed from a browser on both desktop PCs and mobile handsets. Today we will talk about the latest YouTube version that was released for Android TVs.
First of all, we need to mention that the new YouTube version for Android TVs is 2.01.04. We remind you that when YouTube version 2.0 was released it brought some major changes.
Most of them were pretty good, but there was a change that most of the users were quite disappointed. That was the inability to sign in using a brand account.
Also, back then the developers have removed the ability to switch accounts, which was another reason why the users were complaining about the new version of the application.
The developers have noticed that there are several users complaining about the lack of account switching on the official YouTube forums. It seems that they have decided to solve this problem and they’ve released the new YouTube 2.01.04, which is solving the account switch issue.
In the change log, the developers have also mentioned that “Brand accounts are back,” which will surely please most of the users. The new update has already started rolling out to Android TVs, but it will take a while until it will reach all of them.
However, if you can’t wait until then, you can always download the APK file from the internet and manually install it on your Android TV.
