SHIELD TV Upgrade 3.2 Will Include 4K VUDU, YouTube 60FPS 4K, Netflix HDR, And Gamestream HDR

NVIDIA is taking advantage of the excitement around Google I/O to announce some improvements to its own Android hardware. The SHIELD TV is getting some interesting new capabilities with its next update, version 3.2. Specifically, it will be the first Android TV hardware to support High Dynamic Range (HDR) video - that's something that's coming to Android N later, but NVIDIA wants to get a jump on the competition.

YouTube Red And YouTube Music Now Available In Australia And New Zealand

Good afternoon, Aussie and Kiwi readers. If you've been drooling with envy at your American counterparts over the ad-free options in YouTube Red and bonus access to the YouTube Music app, you can stop it now. Both Google's support page and several Android Police readers report that the services are now live down under, available for anyone who'd like to sign up. It should be possible to begin a subscription from the web or the YouTube app.

A New Chromecast Queue Design In YouTube For Android Is Rolling Out

There are no stats to back this up, but I'm pretty sure YouTube is one of the most popular apps for use with the Chromecast. To that end, the Chromecast video queue in the YouTube app has been substantially redesigned, using a bar that is drawn up from the bottom with a full queue.

Left: previous 'minimized' design. Right: new 'minimized' design.

Before, the Chromecast queue was only accessible from the inset video that is dragged up from the right hand side of the screen. With this redesign, the inset video disappears entirely and is replaced by a bar that fills the bottom of the screen, much like the now playing bar in Google Play Music.

Video: YouTube's New Share Tab Brings Chat To YouTube

If you've been reading AP in the last 24 hours, you probably saw our hands-on post with YouTube's new Share tab - it's actually very neat. But if you wanted to see and hear the new share tab and chat features explained, just check out our YouTube video, in which we explain YouTube, on YouTube, for you. I'll let Mark take it away.

YouTube Music v1.26 Brings YouTube Playlists To The Likes Tab And Makes A Few Visual Adjustments [APK Download]

Many YouTube Red subscribers aren't making use of the dedicated YouTube Music app yet, but it remains one of the somewhat unique perks of the program. Since launch, the app hasn't seen all that many changes, but updates have been coming out pretty regularly with little tweaks and adjustments. Last week, an unexpected jump from v1.20 to v1.25 suggested some big changes were afoot. A teardown didn't reveal anything of substance – just some minor visual tweaks – but a new changelog has come out since the release of v1.26 this week, and gives us something a little more meaningful.

What's New

Official Changelog:

  • New: Listen to your YouTube playlists in the YouTube Music app!

Hands-On With YouTube's New Shared Videos Tab: We Actually Love It

Picture this. You've just finished watching one of the awesome videos from our revamped and reinvigorated Android Police YouTube channel — What?! You haven't subscribed to our channel yet? You're really missing out, go do it now and come back, I'll wait while you get sucked in and watch all our cool new videos... Where was I? Oh yeah, so you've just finished watching Android Police and you just know there are a few friends who will love that video just as much as you do. So you tap to share and you start wondering whether you'll send the link over Hangouts, WhatsApp, email, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, or any other form of communication that you use.

[Huh?] YouTube Is Getting In-App Messaging For Some Reason

When I sit down for a YouTube session, I often think: how cool would it be if I was able to message my friends through YouTube? I don't even have to leave the app/website to do it, and it'd be so much easier if I could message here than on Facebook, Hangouts, or SMS. Awesome!

For some utterly bizarre reason, YouTube is getting in-app messaging. The tab has been appearing on a small number of Android devices over the last 48 hours or so, and Wired published a post explaining the new feature. Apparently, users can get others into the service by inviting them to chat.

YouTube Is Testing A New Progress Bar Showing How Far You Were In A Video

When you start watching a video, you don't always finish it right away. Distractions happen. Someone hit you up with a Hangouts message. You needed to restart for an update. Whatever.

Now you're back to finish watching, but where did you leave off?

YouTube's Up Next Autoplay Feature Appears To Be Rolling Out To Android

YouTube does a lot of cool things, but the consensus is that auto-playing the next video is not one of them. I'm sure some people like that, and they're going to be quite pleased to hear that Google appears to be adding autoplay to the Android app. It's looking like a server-side change, so sit tight and prepare to be pleased or annoyed, depending on your outlook.

YouTube Is Testing A New Material UI On The Web

Google apparently has a Material Design UI overhaul in the works for YouTube and it looks pretty good. While it has not yet been pushed to the masses, it is apparently being tested on a small group of users while the developers look for bugs and Google braces for any negative feedback (people hate change, remember). Here's a look at the goods and a way to enable the new UI for yourself.

First, let's look at the homepage. Here's the current version:

And the new:

Not exactly a radical difference, but you do see the modern search bar that should be familiar from Google's Android apps and several web services as well.
