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.

Still nothing in Philly. Anybody got anything?

Regular Contributor

Re: Comcast to Launch YouTube on Xfinity X1

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.

On the My Account app is letting me know that there is schedule maintenance that may interrupt all my service from 0300-0600. Hopefully this is them adding YouTube.

Very doubtful.  This thread will probably be updated with the release.

Re: Comcast to Launch YouTube on Xfinity X1

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!

Re: Comcast to Launch YouTube on Xfinity X1

When I checked to see if I had Youtube app ( I didn't) I saw they added the Xfinity xFi app which I already have on my phone.

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.

Re: Comcast to Launch YouTube on Xfinity X1

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.

In Mpls/St. Paul, we got the "Coming Soon" e-mail 3 weeks ago and as of today, no YouTube. I've learned after the Xfinity for Roku beta rollout and continuing debacle not to hold my breath on any rollout announcements.

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?

Eureka!!! Just got home from work and the app is up! Under entertainment you see that big red You Tube logo. Seems to be working ok, even have my account up with all my favorites. I am in Media Pa about 15 minutes outside of Philly

Re: Comcast to Launch YouTube on Xfinity X1

well isn't that always the way. now youtube offers voice speed (lke 1.5x and 2.0x) for those long podcasts etc. - great feature. wonder if the app on Xfinity will get that feature?

Can you verify the XRE version? You can  check this by saying "about" or click the gear Icon > about

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.

I noticed it was listed in my entertainment apps last night.  I didn't really test it other than simply clicking on it.  I am in Atlanta.

Re: Comcast to Launch YouTube on Xfinity X1

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!!!  :>)

Re: Comcast to Launch YouTube on Xfinity X1

I don't know anything about xre versions or anything like that. All I can tell you is go to menu, hit apps and it is on the 2nd row under entertainment. You can't miss it

Re: Comcast to Launch YouTube on Xfinity X1

The version didn't change for those that are interested. They just added the Youtube app.

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
