YouTube Version 5 for Android is Awesome and Here’s How You can Get It Now


Google’s latest YouTube app for Android features the most comprehensive revamp since the app was released. The newest YouTube (version 5) brings a hugely improved user experience from an already intuitive application. Some of the notable improvements you get in the new YouTube:

  • A totally new card-based UI that looks damn good and is easy to use as well. Essentially, you swipe across the screen to navigate through videos
  • The UI is also enhanced for tablets now and it looks good in landscape
  • In-app multitasking with picture-in-picture. You can turn the current video you’re watching into a thumbnail by swiping it down, pressing the down arrow in the top left corner, or simply pressing the “back” button
  • Multitasking also allows you to navigate the app while a video is playing
  • Quick access to history, favorites, playlists, uploads, and watch later right in the slide-out menu
  • You can now search for playlists
  • Landscape mode rotate button making it easier to rotate to landscape mode

We really like the new YouTube and if you’re a YouTube junkie, you’ll appreciate the many improvements as well. Unfortunately the app is being released in stages and as far as we can tell, Malaysia is still on the waiting list. But if you want to try the app now, here’s the link to the APK, download it from your phone and install. Let us know what you think of the new youTube. Have fun.
