​New YouTube App for Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 phones

​Last March, we launched the YouTube Mobile app for Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile phones. Since then, the application was translated to 12 languages, installed on millions of devices around the world, and has been chosen as a Nokia Ovi Top App of 2009. Today we’re excited to announce the release of the latest version of the YouTube Mobile app, version 2.4.

We strongly believe that faster is better. The YouTube Mobile app is designed to be the fastest way to find and play a video on your smartphone. In the initial release we minimized the number of features and focused on speed for things that matter - app startup, finding a video, and starting playback.

In today’s release we have added search query suggestions, ‘My Account’ support, and a new homescreen user interface that is optimized for larger screens. Now when you log into your YouTube account on our phone, you can view your favorites, subscriptions and playlists from wherever you are. Let’s say you have recently found an amazing basketball shot video and favorited it on your desktop PC. When you’re at the basketball court with your friends all you need to do is launch the YouTube app and go to your “Favorites” to show it to them.



Another feature that we have added is query suggestions. When you type into the YouTube search box, you get relevant suggestions. This saves on typing which is especially useful for mobile phones where text input may be difficult.


To download the app on your Windows Mobile or Nokia S60 phone, simply visit m.youtube.com/app in your phone's browser. For more information, please take a look at the YouTube Help Center.

How come there's no settings for quality? I have a good 3G connection and a 640x480 screen - why can't I play the HD quality?

Really? Isn't BlackBerry one of Google's three primary mobile platforms? Not to mention, there's no real Youtube app for BlackBerry.

This should be a no brainer, use some of that search data would ya and get a decent Youtube BlackBerry app (4.5+).

Gives a "device not supported" error on a Samsung Omnia II. Guess I'll have to wait for someone to post the CAB file.

Windows Mobile users: remember to use Microsoft's Internet Explorer to open m.youtube.com/app and not Opera!
