Kinetic Fit Adds YouTube Playlists to iOS Fit App
The Kinetic Fit app for iOS has a new feature! We've added YouTube video streaming during workouts. In addition to watching videos stored on your device, streaming from Dropbox, or the optional Sufferfest subscription, you can now stream video playlists from YouTube!
With over 300 hours of video uploaded every minute your options are practically endless no matter what you feel like watching while you ride. You simply connect your Fit profile with your Google account and build a playlist on YouTube. Your playlists will display after you select a workout and the video button. Video can be viewed on your device or mirrored to a second screen.
The new YouTube feature is part of our Smart subscription package, but available for free to current users through August 1. Update your Kinetic Fit app now!
