The new YouTube app for Android has a new, small TV screen icon. When pressing this icon the YouTube video will be streamed to your TV via the Google TV box.

- “Just find a video on your YouTube app for Android — like the latest video from GoPro or H+ The Digital Series — click the TV icon that appears, and the video will play instantly on your Google TV,” YouTube Product Manager Timbo Drayson says.

While streaming you can use the smartphone or tablet as a remote. Other users can also add items to the playlist.

The new YouTube feature is only available for Android for now. YouTube says: “stay tuned to see this feature coming to more devices and screens in the future”.
