Like most things Google, when Glass finally launched for I/O attendees back in May, it was kind of…. “beta”. But we knew that going in, and while the future of Glass was filled with near limitless possibilities, there were a few core functions and must-have apps missing. One of those? YouTube.
Okay, at first, I wasn’t quite sure how Glass would even handle streaming video, let alone the impact on battery life. But after experiencing the CNN app, I decided it could be done, and needs to be done and YouTube needs to be streaming on my face. At all times.
Looks like I might finally get my wish. In a survey sent out earlier today to Google Glass Explorers, Google had a section to rate Glass’ currently available applications on a satisfaction scale of about 8 points. One of those apps in that list? The non-existent YouTube.
Of course, this is by no means any indication that Glass will soon receive YouTube in the near future, our fingers are crossed we’ll see implemented in the upcoming XE8 software update, due out sometime this month.
