YouTube has announced the release of YouTube remote to the Android Market, which allows you to control YouTube Leanback on Google TV from your Android device. The application is similar to Apple’s Airplay in the sense that you can continue playing a video you’re watching on your phone when you come in range of your Google TV device.
It connects to your Google account, and then when YouTube remote detects that you’ve opened a YouTube app on another device (be it your computer or Google TV), it will automatically start playing on that device. This feature can be turned off in the application if you would like to tell it manually when you would like to continue watching on a different device.
The application is free, and is available now in the Android Market (or scan the QR code below). Also, be on the lookout for a mini review of YouTube Remote in the coming days.
