X set to take on YouTube with launch of TV app for videos



Elon Musk’s X, formerly known as Twitter, is about to release the X TV app, which allows users to upload 1080p videos, cast videos, and access AI content and video search.

The app will have AI-powered topics that will arrange videos by topic and a trending video algorithm that will help users remain current with personalized popular material.

This development was announced on Tuesday by X CEO Linda Yaccarino, who stated that the new app will bring “real-time, engaging content to your smart TVs.”

As seen in a teaser video shared by Yaccarino, the app’s interface looks quite similar to YouTube‘s, and it was developed to take on the popular video streaming platform.
