Uptime, the Google App That Lets Users Watch YouTube Videos Together, Is Now Open to All

The app also added Facebook Login to help users find their friends

Uptime, the invite-only iOS application Google’s Area 120 startup incubator launched in March to enable users to share and watch YouTube videos in real-time with each other, is no longer invite-only.

Uptime users can:

  • Search for YouTube videos to share with the community.
  • Watch videos that have already been shared with the community.
  • See which videos other users are watching in real-time, as well as which videos they have previously viewed.
  • Follow other users within the app.
  • Share comments, like videos and share emoji reactions.

The What’s New section of the iTunes App Store listing for Uptime also detailed these updates:

  • A new home screen to make it easier for users to see what videos are being watched.
  • The addition of music videos
  • Facebook Login integration to help users find their friends on the app.
