YouTube returns to Windows Phone

YouTube returns to Windows Phone


Microsoft’s YouTube application for Windows Phone has returned to the Windows Marketplace, ending weeks of disagreements between the two giants.

In May, Microsoft was forced to take down its YouTube app after Google complained in a cease and desist letter the application was not in line with its terms of service (ToS) with the two companies agreeing to create another app in line with Google’s API ToS.

Microsoft in a statement now says it has upgraded its app to address the concerns, including advertisements while at the same time providing the same experience.

“We’ve released an updated YouTube app for Windows Phone that provides the great experience our consumers expect while addressing the concerns Google expressed in May, including the addition of ads,” read the statement sent to TechCrunch.

“We appreciate Google’s support in ensuring that Windows Phones customers have a quality YouTube experience and look forward to continuing the collaboration.”

Using the new app, Windows Phone owners can live stream YouTube content and upload video to the platform.

Apart from YouTube, Microsoft and Google have fought over mobile mapping, search dominance and synchronisation of emails.
