And under that, what Google calls “channels” are to be displayed. These various channels powers by apps installed on your mobile or tablet device and include recommendations featured content, and more.
Version 4.40 for Android devices like mobile handsets and tablets sees a change of application name from “YouTube TV” to “YT TV.” This change can only be seen in the home screens and the application launchers, however, the application information page or Play Store has no mention of the update.

The abbreviation matches “YT Music,” and sees “YT TV” move to the right of the audio streaming application according to alphabetical order. For most people, YouTube TV is now in their last item app drawer alphabetically, though this might impose some challenges when searching according to your device’s launcher.
