The YouTube app, which suffered a short one month exile after Google’s complaint, finally returns home. Widows phone users can now breathe fresh air.
The reason behind YouTube’s return is an agreement between Google and Microsoft. Things have fallen in place, Microsoft has agreed to make necessary changes. Users will be seeing more ads, thanks to Google insisting them to do so.
The new upgraded YouTube app has it’s own array of features. Yes, you will be able to upload videos from your phones, but there is always a pinch of salt. Whats the catch? Ridiculous but true, you will have to be connected to WiFi and have your charger plugged in if you want to upload videos of size greater than 5 MB. If you unplug the charger while uploading a video, the upload stops instantaneously.
All the glitches aside, you can stream live video channels. In addition to this, users can enjoy features like voice search and activation from the home screen. That’s not all, you can also pin channels, playlists and videos to the start screen. Users will be able to manage their YouTube profile.
The app should be available on Windows store for Windows Phone 7.8 and 8 starting today. It may take a couple of days to reach all handsets.
