Uptime is a new way to watch YouTube with iPhone-using friends, no matter where they are

Last year Google launched a startup incubator called Area 120, which was designed to give its employees a place within the company to flesh out their own ideas. At South by Southwest, we got a look at the first project to come out of it, and somewhat surprisingly, it’s an invitation-only, iOS-exclusive app for watching and sharing YouTube videos.</p><p>
Called Uptime, the free app is sort of like a souped-up comments section for just your friends. As you watch a video you’ll see a series of floating avatars around the border (including your own), and you can record your reactions in real time with text, emoji, stickers, or likes. It’s similar to how Facebook Live and Periscope let you respond to broadcasts in real time, but applying it to prerecorded videos is an interesting concept, and the quirky interface seems tailor-made for encouraging engagement.</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3180205/ios/uptime-is-a-new-way-to-watch-youtube-with-iphone-using-friends-no-matter-where-they-are.html#jump">To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
