YouTube TV arrives in 10 new US markets: here’s the list

YouTube TV is now available in 10 additional markets, representing a big uptick in the number of still-limited regions in which the livestreaming television service is available.

YouTube experiment transforms video thumbnails into GIFs

Google is testing a new feature on YouTube that will greatly enhance the browsing experience: animated video thumbnails that offer a snippet of what the video contains. This experiment is arriving for only some users that access the service on desktop, though we may see them expand to everyone in the future.

Video from Russia shows dust devil turning into a fire tornado

There's no shortage of entertaining videos from Russia, and while most of them involve balls of fire shooting through the sky, this one is a bit different: a dust devil made its way over to an open flame and transformed into a fire tornado. Thanks to a witness who was quick with their camera, the entire process was caught on video (vertically, that is, but it works well in this case).

YouTube introduces resizing player, expands sharing power

YouTube introduces resizing player, expands sharing power

Last month, all of Google's major products went on stage at I/O, but this time, it's YouTube's turn to shine on its own. At this year's VidCon, Google introduced its new "half" 360-degree VR180 platform, but that is hardly the only new YouTube thing going on.

YouTube changes its rules again

YouTube changes its rules again

This week the folks at YouTube responsible for the rules it lives by have made another big change. Details have been shared this morning on what YouTube is allowing in or out - and which sorts of content all content judges will be considering "hate speech".
