A huge update to the third-party MyTube app is rolling out right now in all regions. This update, Version 3.0, features a complete redesign of the app and adds support for it on Microsoft’s Xbox One video game console. Here’s the complete version notes:
New, more modern and simpler UI
Launching on Xbox for the first time
Switch to and from background audio with zero pause
myTube to myTube casting: Cast from myTube on your phone to myTube on your PC or Xbox
Videos watched in myTube will now appear in your YouTube history
You can now select subtitle language
Channel search integrated into channel page
Option to use YouTube’s official web player in order to support YouTubers financially
Main tile will now show subscriptions
Probably one of the best changes with this update, besides the Xbox One functionality, is the addition of the YouTube web player which allows users to view ads on videos. While this may seem like an odd feature to want for the average user, it’s an important feature as it means this unofficial YouTube app won’t completely strip revenue from YouTube accounts.
