Android 2.2 Gets YouTube 2.1
Google has released its YouTube app at version 2.1 for Android. It can be downloaded via Android Market. Version 2.1 will only work with devices running Android 2.2 and will likely come pre-installed on Android 2.3 devices when released.
The new YouTube 2.1 brings improvements and are fully explained in the video above and listed below.
New full-screen UI: To enter full-screen mode simply rotate the phone. The new player controls make it easier to seek within the video, and you can pause or resume the playback by just tapping on the screen.
In-page playback: you can read the video description, browse related, rate or flag videos without having to interrupt video playback.
Subscription updates: we've made it easier to access new videos from your subscriptions. If you are signed into your account, you will see all your subscription updates right on the home screen of the app.
Posting comments: you can post a comment while the video is playing, just like on the desktop website.
