It was a sad day when earlier this year, Windows Phone users learned that the YouTube app was pulled from the store due to a cease and desist letter from Google. Well, Google and Microsoft have been working together to release a new app.
And now the app will be making its way back into the Windows Phone Store today. A Microsoft spokesperson told The Verge, “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.”
The app will no longer have the download functionality, which Google probably insisted on. It also includes new features like video upload support, the ability to stream live video channels, voice search, voice activation, and more. Find it at the Windows Phone Store for free. Windows Phone users will be happy to get this app back.
