Wednesday was a big day for YouTube, with two significant announcements about its service. First, it has relaunched its mobile site, with the new version being faster, more touchscreen-friendly, and supporting more features from the main YouTube site. YouTube says the HTML5 mobile site will be updated more regularly than its native smartphone apps.Also announced yesterday was the beta launch of YouTube Leanback, which according to Google is “all about letting you sit back, relax and be entertained. Videos tailored to your interests play as soon as you visit the site and they play in full screen and high definition, continuously… Watching YouTube becomes as easy as watching TV”. Which is one of the main targets for the new site – people with connected TVs.
