YouTube app for Android was recently updated with some new features like in-page playback. Previously Android devices running Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich were having access to HD resolution but the new update has extended the capability of some more devices to run HD streaming that are running Gingerbread/Froyo. Another important point to be noted is that YouTube HD is not working on every device having Android 2.2 or 2.3 but it runs dynamically depending upon the resolution and screen size of mobile or tablet on which it is to be running.
Following are some new things mentioned on Android Market about YouTube HD Update:
- Beautiful new UI design
- In-page playback (read comments while video is playing!)
- Personalized home screen video feed
- Brand new player controls
- Rotate-for-full screen playback
