It took Microsoft a little bit longer, to solve its dispute with Google, but finally Redmond brought back the long-time missed YouTube app for Windows Phone which is again available as a free download from the Windows Phone Market. As before, the app allows to experience the world of YouTube on Windows Phone and allows to access your YouTube account to easily explore and manage YouTube's vast catalogue of videos, channels and subscriptions. Furthermore the app allows to pin videos, playlists, channels and even search queries to the Windows Phone Start screen as Live Tiles. Live Tiles flip to show YouTube's most popular videos or your subscriptions' latest uploads.

The Windows Phone YouTube app also allows to manage your YouTube profile with your unique My YouTube page, manage your playlists, uploads and video lists, find channels, videos and playlists with the quick access search bar with new search suggestions as well as share videos to social networks, E-Mail and text messages.

New in this release, and this is much appreciated are the support of YouTube Live Video Streaming, upload videos from your Windows Phone, keyword suggestions in Search and even more supported languages. Furthermore is the app also integrating with Windows Phone's "Kid's Corner", which helps to ensure that your kids are watching age-appropriate videos.

Cheers ~ Arne

Initially I wrote "Unfortunately, and this is a real drawback, Microsoft's newest YouTube app for Windows Phone requires Windows Phone 8. Windows Phone 7.8 owners are again lost and forgotten." and I want to make clear that it was my mistake! Windows Phone is supported from Windows Phone 7.5.
