YouTube has spent the last couple years overhauling the apps it provides for different devices, but it has steered clear of Apple TV.
Not anymore: The world's biggest video service has refreshed its app for Apple's TV streaming box. The update means YouTube on Apple TV will look similar to YouTube on Xbox and other devices, both in terms of appearance and content.
The most consequential change is that YouTube videos on Apple TV will run with ads. Which also means that all of the videos that run on YouTube (most notably music videos) will now run on YouTube's Apple TV app.
It also (probably) means that Google's team doesn't think Apple is planning a significant overhaul of Apple TV anytime soon, since it (probably) wouldn't spend the time on an app refresh if it thought the device was going to change radically in the near future.
