Google revamps YouTube for Windows Phone

Google revamps YouTube for Windows Phone
Yesterday, the mobile version of the YouTube webpage mysteriously disappeared for Windows Phone users, but the confusion didn’t last long and Google is back, and it seems the daily absence has yielded only good results as when you access the webpage now it shows a refreshed and cleaner user interface. Why should you care for it? Well, the YouTube app in Windows Phone is nothing but a redirect to the mobile version of the website and when you tap on a video you are taken to the media player.

So now, you have virtually all the options of the desktop version of the website in a nice, touch-enabled redesign, so you can like, dislike, comment and find releated videos quickly. Nothing has changed all that much in terms of pure functionality, which is a good thing, so why don’t you head to the website and check it out yourself.

Google don't care about WP7, they only care about Android ! that's why you are not getting a real youtube app for WP7.

You're lucky Google is giving you anything! At least they aren't like Apple, and only care about their own platform.

i think it makes more sense to show it as the webpage, just like a computer; and always have the updated features rather than an app that you have to update
