Google Releases Its Official YouTube iPhone App Ahead of iOS 6 Launch

One of the iOS 6's beta build hinted that Apple wouldn't be including their default YouTube app when the next version of iOS reached its final public version. That prompted Google to work hard to released their own YouTube app for the first time since 2007; and today they released it.

Google's YouTube app, which runs natively for the iPhone, features the now familiar sidebar navigation found on many iOS apps. The app brings:

  • Enjoy YouTube’s vast video catalog, including official music videos
  • Find videos and channels more easily with voice search and query autocomplete
  • Subscribe to channels and instantly access your subscriptions with the channel guide UI 
  • Read comments, browse related videos, enable subtitles and more - all while watching
  • Easy video sharing to Google+, E-mail, Facebook and Twitter

The app looks and works much better than Apple's app. Navigation is intuitive, better discovery and sharing, etc. Apple is expeted to announce the release date of iOS 6 without the native YouTube app to the public tomorrow.

Download the app and compare it to Apple's YouTube app. You can grab it for free in the App Store [iTunes Link].
