Earlier today, we brought you word that YouTube has started to include a “nomobile” flag for Windows Phone users, and here we are with more information about YouTube, although this time around, it will have nothing to do with Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform, but rather, for Google’s very own Android mobile operating system. Google has updated the YouTube app in the Google Play Store, and should it be unavailable on your smartphone or tablet just yet (which would obviously be Android-powered), fret not – it is a gradual rollout, so sooner or later, it will appear in the Google Play Store.
Just what kind of updates can one expect from the new YouTube for Android app? Apart from featuring its fair share of bug fixes, it also introduces some new user interface changes. Cards seem to be just about everywhere, with a multi-window feature that enables you to view a video in one window, with the other window enabling you to go through your feeds. Not only that, there is a new icon that made its way to the updated app as part of the changes, which will include a hamburger style menu and video suggestion overlays during playback amongst others.
