YouTube app updateVoice sreach app updated

 The YouTube for Android and Google Voice Search applications have been updated (no it's not Gingerbread! :p ) with some welcome improvements and the obligatory bug-fixes.  With the YouTube app update comes what everyone has been wanting, commenting from within the app itself.  You also can now see videos you subscribe to on the main screen, and an "All" category has been added to the browse screen.  Add in some bug-fixes and the app really gets better, even if all we care about is commenting.

The Voice Search app also brings some very nice improvements, namely "improved connectivity" to squash some of those connection errors many now see, and better name recognition when using Voice-Actions.  We all welcome those kind of changes.  Of course, the bug-fixes are there, too. You can update right from the market, or hit the download links after the break. [Android Central Forums]

Update: Google has posted the full changelog, which you can find here.  Also worth mentioning -- "Please note that the new YouTube app only works on devices running Android 2.2. To install it, search for 'YouTube' in Android Market. It also comes pre-installed on many upcoming Android 2.3 devices, such as the Nexus S."

No Youtube update for me. Can someone tell me what version the new one is? Mine is 1.6.20 (E)

BobbyPhoenix says:

You can only update to 2.1.6 if your firmware version is 2.2 or higher. Anything below (example: 2.1-update1) can't have it.

A lot of updates recently... market now has automatic update, but I wonder if it's usable :D

i4get75 says:

Wait a min! 2.1.6???? How do I get the new one? It doesn't show up in the Market for me.

Mobius360 says:

Mine did the update and it's 2.1.6, it appears you have the newest version already.

Wow! Goggle voice search is SO MUCH faster! It's almost instant results for me!

masego says:

I don't understand why the apps that come pre-loaded on the phone (i.e. YouTube and Voice Search) don't indicate updates are available. How is an average user supposed to find these updates?

ziaodix says:

I've discovered it does indicate they have an update available, but not in your download section on the market, it shows up as update available when I scroll through the apps. I agree though, I think something needs to be fixed so they show up in your Downloads section so you don't have to go hunting for them.

BroncoTed says:

um, how do i update these if they are preloaded? i checked manage applications, no, not part of downloads in the market...... sorry just dont know - would i really have to delete and reinstall?

masego says:

search for them in the market and then download.

Mobius360 says:

They will be available as an update in the market but they do not flag as needing an update until you download from the market. So after you do a market update/install the next time there is an update it will let you know.

BroncoTed says:

so if i never read this story, i wouldnt look for an update, or automatically get the update? do you know what i'm saying? seems kind of ridiculous

ziaodix says:

I agree. Which is why I rooted my phone, deleted all the "preloaded" apps that were available on the market just so I could install them from the market and know under my Downloads section updates were available, but this seems like an unnecessary process. I think this does need to be addressed.

DerekMorr says:

There's a new voice action in this update -- "set alarm," e.g., "set alarm for 7am on Friday". Oddly, the bundled clock app doesn't support this feature -- you get an error message telling you to install a clock app that does: http://www.google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?answer=187559.

I wonder if Google plans to update Clock to support alarms via voice actions.

marcch says:

Google Chrome to Phone was also updated... brings a history of sent links ;)
