Future YouTube update for Android will bring background audio support

0. phoneArena 23 Oct 2013, 00:59 posted on

Android owners have been waiting for an update to their YouTube app, which would allow for offline viewing of some material for up to 48 hours after losing an internet signal; this is taken care of by u a special part of the YouTube app. Once the internet signal is reacquired, the video can be viewed at anytime. But alas, an update to the Android version of the streaming video site on Tuesday revealed nothing along those lines...

It needs an update to watch 1080p videos on mobile. You have to use a modded YouTube app or viral to do it now.

Btw they should give you an option to make the settings menu look like these menus do, beautiful (I said option because I know because of AMOLEDS haha)

MetroTube on WP already has this facility.

By the way with the newer YouTube updates the app is getting 'Heavier'. I have a mid range android device which used to load YouTUbe fast but after recent updates (since they changed the layout) the app is painfully slow and consumes lot of ram.

First they have to create a good app for WP8.

FINALLY!! Hate when it stops, when switching to other apps/browser or turn off the screen.
This is really welcome.
