Update to YouTube brings improved video and YouTube Mix automatic playlist for music videos
The Android version of YouTube has been updated to include a few new features. While Google has reportedly delayed a streaming music service until later this year when it is more polished, YouTube Mix is part of the new update. This feature automatically produces a list of music videos available for a particular artist. Most of the videos for well-known acts are coming from Vevo. You can share and like others' playlists. Your liked and personal playlists will show up in the left-hand guide drawer.

After updating the app, those using Android 4.2 or higher, should notice an improvement in the quality of the videos played over YouTube. A trio of changes have been made to the comments section, allowing users to reply to comments, and also delete comments that they have put up themselves. And now, YouTube users can determine if a comment was shared privately or publicly.

The update is available now, waiting for Android users in the Google Play Store.

A few weeks ago youtube has changed and some really annoying adds has begun to appear. Obviously a new video channel is needed. Sorry, youtube.
