RealTime appears as a toolbar at the bottom of every YouTube page with three main items. The most prominent button is an indicator showing when you have Realtime sharing turned on, obviously to ensure that you dont accidentally share some videos you arent too proud of watching. The Online Friends tab shows which videos your friends are currently watching (if any) and their recent history. It also allows you to send an invitation to come watch the video youre watching, which will pop up on their screen (you can turn notifications off). This is where the real power of the new product lies, as it allows friends to instantly share videos with each other.
