Samsung and YouTube have teamed up to deliver 3D content to connected TV users. Samsung announced at the IFA consumer electronics show in Germany that the two parties will update the YouTube app available on Samsung Smart TVs to make it capable of delivering 3D content.
Samsung claims users will have access to thousands of 3D videos. Guy Kinnell, marketing director, TV, Samsung UK said: “Samsung Smart TV is an ideal platform for YouTube to convey the beautifully visual user interface and 3D experience that consumers will now have at their fingertips for watching and sharing 3D content worldwide. This partnership will contribute to the continued growth of both the 3D and Smart TV industries.”
Other enhancements to the app include optimised user interfaces for larger screens, simplified login and better search functionality. The service now also includes a personalised profile, which provides users with tailored recommendations based on their individual interests and previous search terms.
