Relax everyone, the app is coming. The app must be created then beta tested before it can be released as functional. My guess would be Sept - Dec 2017

They can't.  They roll the update across the country to millions of X1 users. I am in the Houston market and others I know here have gotten changes wees before and after I did.

No not in Boston area.

 

There is another thread complaining about Comcast taking the B button PIP function away. I'm wondering  if Comcast is planing to use the B button as a short cut to the YouTube app when it gets here.

As of this morning I now have Youtube app on X1 Smiley Happy

It works very well for the most part and the only issues I have with it as of now is that Voice control from the remote does not work at all just yet. Also it is some what slow moving around the interface especially compared to using Youtube on Android TV. Also the videos are muting after a while when sending videos from my iPad to Youtube on X1.

 

But it is brand new so hopefully these small issues can be improved in the future!

It's kind of buggy at this point and while I was very happy to finally get it there is some major reliability improvments needed!

One example I was just using it and I clicked the exit button to exit out of the app and I got a black scrren for like over a minute before it finally went back to a live channel.

 

As of now I think I will stick with Youtube for Android TV.

I just called comcast to see if I could find anything out and the girl told me that everybody should have it by Sept. 13. I just want it cause i'm a boxing fan and I buy the great fighters' dvd career set, which I won't have to do anymore if I get you tube on the tv.

what XRE (menu version) do you have? (voice remote "about") and look on XRE server version - is it 1.78/03 8/17/2017 or later? did you go to the menu for apps, 2nd row under entertainment by the Netflix app for the YouTube red icon?

Rustyben,

                 I'm using 1.78.03 (8/17/17) and no youtube yet so the XRE version is later than that.

They haven't gotten to all the regions yet. The updates are rolled out by mac address. When netflix rolled out, there was a new XRE version.

Youtube has arrived in Boston area. Takes a minute to "activate" by using a code when you try to use it on your TV. But once you are logged in to your existing account all your history is there. It takes a while to understand what remote buttons do what to play, rewind, etc the videos. Also those pesky commercials that you can exit in 4 seconds are still there!!!  :>)

Disappeared on my main box already. Also, on my favorites where I have a bunch of old fights halfway thru, instead of picking up where I left off they are all starting from the beginning. Kind of makes it not worthwhile. Oh well, at least I had it for a day working right
