Low sales don’t seem to be stopping Google from continuing development on Google TV. Yesterday they announced an update for the YouTube app making it faster and easier to find content and a new Discover feature.

The app will be updated via the Android Market.

Details from the Google TV blog:

First you’ll notice the app works faster with smoother navigation for a better experience. Next, we’ve added a new feature called Discover, which lets you browse YouTube channels by categories. Whether you’re looking for hilarious comedy, delectable cooking content, or the latest news, you can find great channels for any of your interests.

We’ve also updated the YouTube app with new channel pages. You can navigate through playlists and videos in your favorite channels, and you can subscribe to channels from the YouTube app with just a click.

We’ve made improvements to allow even more interaction with your favorite channels. You can now see related videos and more videos from the same user by pressing the up or down arrows on your remote.

Once you’ve found a great video, continue to use the up and down arrows on your remote to find the Info screen where you can give the video a thumbs up, add it to one of your YouTube playlists, or leave a comment for the YouTube community.

We hope these new features in the Google TV YouTube app help you discover even more entertainment you love!
