Android creator Google has updated its YouTube app for Android 2.2 (Froyo) and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) users with new features.
One of the best features of the update allows users to pre-load a video while on a fast Wi-Fi network or while charging, and play it back later on a slower network.
Google mentioned in its blog post that, “This feature temporarily stores video data on your Android phone and lets you watch YouTube videos (even high quality ones) without any interruptions. To play these preloaded videos, you"ll still need a network signal. Even if you have a weak network signal, you"ll be able to watch YouTube videos without any pausing. Right now the following videos are available for preloading: Subscribed videos and Videos in your Watch Later playlist."
The new app also allows users to add videos to their YouTube TV queue from their mobile device — like a watch later option for those using YouTube TV. Users will also be able to use their phone as a remote while watching YouTube videos on other screens. The update now brings the same YouTube UI and functionality for Android phones from 2.2 to 4.1.1.
