Google YouTube App 2.1 for Froyo Devices Launched (Video)

December 13, 2010, By Leo Xavier

Google has launched a new app, the YouTube app v2.1, for devices that run on the Froyo OS. The new app is meant to rebuild the YouTube desktop experience on smartphones, but the only disappointment is that the new app will not provide support for devices that run on operating systems below the Android 2.2 OS.

With the YouTube app 2.1, you will be able to post comments while watching the video on YouTube, the same way you do on your desktop PC.

You will also be able to access your videos in an easier way. If you are already signed in, you will see all your subscription updates directly on the home screen of the YouTube app.

The new player controls will allow you to pause or play the video just by tapping the screen and if you wish to watch the video on the full screen mode, all you will have to do is to rotate the smartphone.

Another advantage of the new app is that you will be able to read the video description, rate or flag videos or browse related videos without interrupting the played video.

The new app will come pre-installed on all the Android 2.3 Gingerbread devices. Check out the video below to see the app running on the newly announced Google Nexus S. For Froyo users, the app is free and can be downloaded from Android Market by searching “YouTube”.
