If you use the YouTube application on your Android device, you have a good reason now to upgrade your app to this latest version.
The YouTube Android app has been updated to include a whole bunch of new features including a refreshed UI. Currently up for grabs on the Google Play store, the application now features the new card-based UI (see below) that lends it a more slick appeal. Users can open the guide from anywhere in the app if they want to quickly view their subscriptions and feeds. Just tap on the sideways arrow at the top of the app at any time.

Upon updating, users will also notice improvements to the slide-out navigation option; its smoother now. One of the biggest highlights of this particular update is the ability to browse through a list of videos, even as a video is playing. Additionally, while watching a video on the app, you can swipe it sideways to dismiss it or drag it back up and hit the small window.
In June, YouTube updated its app for both iOS and Android users with InVideo Programming and Call-to-action overlays for content creators. The InVideo Programming tool feature shows a small screen within your video screen, which prompts you to check out another video. YouTube content creators can use this tool to get users to check out another video from their channels, driving viewership numbers up. Call-to-action overlays are going to make content creators really happy. Uploaders can use these overlays to share more information about their video to raise interest for their channels or their websites. These overlays are currently available for advertisers in AdWords for videos, but YouTube says that it is working towards making it available for all channels later this year.
