YouTube's iOS app has been updated with a "send to TV" feature that lets you beam videos wirelessly to your television from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch — no AirPlay required.
Make sure your TV and your device are connected on the same Wi-Fi network, then tap a new icon at the top of your screen that pairs the app with your TV. From there, you can control playback or pick something different to watch. See how it works here.
The feature is compatible with LG, Panasonic, Sony and Bang & Olufsen sets now, and it will come to Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, Vizio and Western Digital TVs later this year. While navigating media on a console pretty much sucks, using your phone is fun. Watching music videos is going to be so much easier. [iTunes App Store]
