This past November, Google announced an update to its YouTube Android app that would allow users to stream videos from their mobile device to their Google TV device, adding a new layer of connectivity between your smartphone and TV. Not only that, but it also made it possible for multiple users to add videos to a queue which allows for everyone to get a chance to show off their favorite videos to one another. This feature will soon be rolled out to non-Google TV devices with CES attendees getting a glimpse next week.

At CES next week, Google will be bringing that feature to Smart TV devices manufactured by LG, Panasonic and Sony. Later this year, Google will be extending its the feature to other Smart TVs manufactured by Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, Vizio and streaming media-boxes by Western Digital and more.

As of now, no official release date for the initial roll out for the Smart TVs made by LG, Panasonic and Sony, but seeing as they’ll be available to check out at next week’s CES, we’re sure an official release it just weeks away. Otherwise, if you have a video game console or Google TV device, then you already have this feature and are probably enjoying it right this minute.
