Official Youtube App for WP8 Gets the Overhaul Treatment

Category768x1280_thumb_07E1936ANext in line to get the complete overhaul with new features and redesigned look is the official Youtube app for WP8, this coming about a week of the release of the all new Facebook Beta app.  The new youtube app adds a bunch of new features (that were honestly quite needed, metrotube has been my go to app for a while now)

What’s new? Lots. The app now lets you pin videos, channels, playlists and search results right to your Start Screen. A new and innovative playlist design gives you easy access to videos using a touch-friendly filmstrip. Your YouTube profile, playlists, uploads, video lists are easier to manage. And there’s no need to worry about the little ones viewing content you don’t approve of, since you can now pin YouTube to Kid’s Corner and limit content based on YouTube Safety Mode settings you configure.


Somewhat relevant, Joe Belfiore was asking on twitter today which app you think needs another overhaul (besides Facebook and Youtube obviously- plus I think Foursquare just got a refresh); for me it would be whatsapp (Which I know is on th sway) but I’d love to see some deeper integration, preferably like Facebook chat in the messaging hub:


You can grab the app from over here (might take a while to work since it was just published):

    If I can’t upload videos straight from my phone with this update, it’s useless.

    I think Skype App from WP8 needs a better design.

    its quite inconsistent with the whole metro UI (when u have to press that random button in the top right to exit out of profiles) and is tricky to get a hang off..
