Unfortunately, as the app is only available on the American Android Market, I'm unable to test it. From the screenshot, it looks like the interface is fairly simple: you can skip, stop, and pause videos, change the volume, and add new videos to the playlist. I can see this being more useful for Google TV where you're actually some distance from your keyboard -- if you're using Leanback on your PC, it's just a matter of leaning forward to hit the pause button, or skip to the next video.
This is a beta app, incidentally. The official YouTube Android app will almost certainly be updated to contain the same Leanback connectivity in due course. The QR code is after the break.
