Google TV is still around, and with a major announcement set to hit the wires later today, it’s no surprise to see that other specific applications are seeing updates in the very near future for the platform as well. Thanks to the Google TV official blog, the Mountain View-based company has revealed that the YouTube application is set to receive an update in the next few days, which should make using the app a lot easier and more worthwhile.
First and foremost, Google points out that the update will make using the application faster and smoother, which should come as great news to anyone using the YouTube app so far. Additional changes include the inclusion of Discover, which will let you sort through YouTube channels by categories. That will help you find videos based on your interest, and should broaden your search results quite nicely at the same time.
The new channel page will now let you search through playlists and videos in your favorite channels, and you’ll now be able to subscribe to a channel right from the application.
The update is set to land in a few days, so if you’ve got yourself a Google TV unit let us know when you get the update, and what you think of it.
