AmpMe, the awesome music app that syncs playback between multiple devices to create one powerful sound system, now plays nicely with YouTube. The latest update lets users grab their favorite music videos and sync them seamlessly with friends.

AmpMe turns a bunch of Android and iOS devices into an instant boombox that gets the party started almost anywhere. Simply use the app to connect your device to all of your friends’ devices and it will play music perfectly through all of them.

The more devices you have connected, the louder your music gets. Who needs a pricey Bluetooth speaker?

Until now, AmpMe has been able to play music from your local library and from SoundCloud. But with the latest app update, YouTube is supported, which means you can choose from hundreds of millions of music videos.

AmpMe has now attracted over 2 million downloads since it launched last September, and secured a total of $10 million in funding. In fact, its creators just secured $8 million in Series A funding through a round led by Relay Ventures.

The future looks bright for the AmpMe app, then, and YouTube streaming is just the start of it. If you’re not already using it, you can download AmpMe for iOS for free from the App Store.
