Google PH and Ayala Malls launched a partnership that will cater to YouTube enthusiasts to watch content and experience faster-loading videos through Accelerator.
Dubbed as YouTube Lounge, mall-goers in Metro Manila can hang out and watch YouTube videos in the lounge that is powered by high-speed internet courtesy of Globe.
“Filipinos watch videos at 75 minutes per session on mobile, and they are increasingly spending more time on their smartphones. The YouTube Lounge is our way of recognizing the need or our users to access their favorite videos while on the go,” shares Gabby Roxas, country marketing manager of Google Philippines.
YouTube Lounge is sponsored by Ayala Malls and is powered by Globe high-speed WiFi. These are the malls that will have YouTube Lounge.
