There are many smartphone users who are hooked on using their handset to play YouTube videos
. Unfortunately for Windows Phone users, there is no official dedicated YouTube client on the platform. But that doesn't mean that those with a Windows Phone handset can't enjoy the mobile YouTube site, and thanks to a recent behind the scene update, those videos are looking better on handsets supporting Microsoft's mobile OS.
While the browser application remains at v1.0, the actual streaming of the videos via HTML5 has improved to the point that you now have the option of watching some videos in HQ
. Windows Phone users also have available some third party YouTube players
, like YouTube Pro. Still, when it comes to YouTube, Windows Phone still has a long way to go to match the dedicated client on Android and iOS.
