Google releases YouTube app for iOS 6

New Youtube app for iOS6It was widely reported that the devices that will come with the iOS 6 OS from Apple will not have the pre-installed YouTube app on their gadgets.

But just a day before the supposed release of the latest iPhone, which is reportedly going to carry the iOS 6, Google has released a new version of the app that carries with it significant upgrades.

The previously designed YouTube app by Apple forbids advertising. Now, Google has enabled advertising, thus allowing more videos to be streamed on the app. This includes music videos and a whole lot more.

When YouTube and Apple went their separate ways, it gave opportunity to the video sharing site to improve on the app.

According to global director of platform partnership at YouTube Francisco Varela, “Over the years that resulted in a more limited experience for our users, and lots of frustration. We’re going to get rid of that.”

“You’re now going to be able to watch your Lady Gaga video on your phone,” he added.

YouTube is not finished with their YouTube app for iOS 6 just yet. The company gave hints as to what the future brings for the YouTube app.

The first thing you should do if you purchase the rumored iPhone is download this app to enjoy better streaming of videos!

No YouTube app for iOS 6

Bad news for Apple owners who love to watch videos from Google’s video sharing site YouTube, as Apple’s latest operating system, iOS 6, won’t be having YouTube as one of their default apps on their devices.

According to 9to5Mac, they noticed that the YouTube app was nowhere to be found on the beta version of iOS6.

According to Apple, the absence of YouTube from the iOS 6 is due to the fact that their license to carry the app has already expired. Apple has also removed Google Maps from the iOS 6. Replacing the latter is Apple’s own Maps.

Apple said in a statement, “license to include the YouTube app in iOS has ended, customer can use YouTube in the Safari browser and Google is working on a new YouTube app to be on the App Store.”

This is also good news for some sort to YouTube addicts of Apple, as Google will be developing their very own app that can be downloaded through the App Store.

This will hopefully alter Apple’s owners YouTube experience as this could result to a better tailored app for the iOS 6.

The YouTube app that is currently installed in older versions of the Apple OS will still remain and can still be used.
