You may remember a short time ago that Google forced Microsoft to remove their homemade application for YouTube from the Windows Phone Store due to some concerns, well now its back, bringing a few new features to comply with Google’s demands.
In order to confirm and explain this re-release, Microsoft sent out the following statement:
“We’ve released an updated YouTube app for Windows Phone that provides the great experience our consumers expect while addressing the concerns Google expressed in May, including the addition of ads.”
So it looks as though Google and Microsoft have worked out their differences and have added some new features in the process, one of the main being the ability to upload videos directly from the app, as well as the inclusion of ads.
The app can be downloaded on any phone running on Windows Phone 7.X and Windows Phone 8 for free from today.
