YouTube App Updated, Adds Four New Features
The official YouTube application for Android was updated last night to v2.1 which saw the addition of four new features. The app, which is designed for Android 2.2 phones and up, is looking more like the desktop client all the time. Much like Google has done with Maps, the company plans to follow the mantra of launch early, update often. That works for us! Hit the jump for a breakdown of the new features.
- In-page playback: you can read the video description, browse related, rate or flag videos without having to interrupt video playback.
- Posting comments: you can post a comment while the video is playing, just like on the desktop website.
- Subscription updates: we’ve made it easier to access new videos from your subscriptions. If you are signed into your account, you will see all your subscription updates right on the home screen of the app.
- New full-screen UI: To enter full-screen mode simply rotate the phone. The new player controls make it easier to seek within the video, and you can pause or resume the playback by just tapping on the screen.
