Good news for Chromecast owners: YouTube is making it easier to cast from its website by allowing users to add new videos to a queue while another video is already playing on TV.

This feature, which previously was only available on YouTube’s mobile apps, also makes it possible to┬ácollaborative queue up videos with friends, as long as they’re on the same network.┬áSome of those users could even be on mobile devices, while others use their computers — all of their picks still end up in the same queue.

YouTube is also tweaking the look of its video playback page with an emphasis on sharing and playlists. And the player itself is receiving an upgrade as well, and will now automatically pick the best resolution — 360p, 480p or 720p — based on the size of the browser window.

All of the new features should be available to everyone within a few days, according to a Google+ post.
