New app removes videos from Google’s YouTube app
New features in the Google Play Store are being rolled out to the popular video service in an effort to improve its online video offerings.
The company’s YouTube for Android app has been updated to remove videos from the app, according to a blog post by Google’s VP of Product Development, Matt Rogers.
YouTube has been a thorn in the side of YouTube for some time, and YouTube said in November that it was considering pulling its popular video streaming service from Google Play.
Google declined to comment on the matter.
Google has been rolling out a series of updates to the YouTube app in recent weeks, including an improved search experience, new video editing tools and a new “YouTube for Everyone” video editor.
Google has also updated its app to remove ads from video clips, which is also a feature of the new Google Play store update.
Google’s latest update will roll out to users who are signed into the Google account associated with the device on which they’re using the app.
The YouTube app has also received a major update, which now features new videos, and has an enhanced search experience that allows users to search for videos on a list of search terms.
