Youtube

Better sharing and video management along with a few quick bugfixes

An update to Youtube is rolling out for some users in the Google Play Store right now, and although we don't have a complete changelog from Google just yet we have noticed a few changes. Right off the top, version 5.1.1.10 offers you a quick way to share videos or add them to watch later, favorites or a new playlist straight from the recommended or search results page with a tap on the overflow button. Previously you could only add them to "watch later."

Another tiny change is the inability to subscribe to your own channel — makes sense, and we consider this one more of a bugfix than anything. Also new is a simple two-tap way to clear your video history from the overflow menu when viewing the list of your recently watched videos.

We're still waiting to see a full proper changelog from Google in the Play Store (we're still looking at the big one from last week), but you can still go check for and download the update.

As for the video counter/scrubbing in landscape mode on the note 2? If it's there I have yet to discover it since the new interface

The update also pushes new ads for other Google services. Yay. I think the old version will work just fine for me.

Haven't seen the update yet. A lack of commenting is a bummer though.

Being able to remove videos from recommended or watch now would be good as well... Unlikely they would ever do that though - they seem to think they always get it right.
