Google has released a new iPhone-only app called Uptime. It lets you watch YouTube videos with your friends in real-time.

Google Boosts its Mobile App Portfolio with Release of Uptime - No News of Android Version Just Yet

There's nothing better than catching up on an excellent little YouTube video with your friend. But the problem is: if they aren't in the same room, then there's no way to watch that new viral phenomenon, until or unless you send the link to them. However, if you have Google's new iPhone app installed on your device, called Uptime, then defiantly you can achieve wonders.

In a nutshell, the app lets you watch YouTube videos with your friends in real-time. But not only that, you can comment or share reactions there and then. Furthermore, you have the option to curate a list of favorite YouTube videos which you can then share with your friends. Hence you are not limited to just one video. Lastly, you will get recommendations based on the people you follow.

Uptime is a place to share and watch videos together with friends. Easily share your favorite YouTube video and bring friends together to watch, chat, and have fun.

- Watch videos together with friends.
- Interact and chat while watching videos.
- Share and curate your favorite YouTube videos.
- Get daily video recommendations from friends and people you follow.


The app is available for iPhone users only and there's no word whether or not it would be available for Android. Whenever it is though, we will inform our users about it. Also, the app is limited for a few people. But if you enter the 'PIZZA' or 'SUNNY' invite code, you can jump into action in no time. You can download the app by tapping on the link below. It's absolutely free.

Having given the app a spin on my iPhone for a few minutes, I have to admit that it's a fun little piece of software. But the long-run value you might get out of this will not be that astonishing. Still, it's worth giving a shot, and if you do, let us know how it fared for you in the comments section below.
