YouTube for Android has gotten even better with its brand new upgrade in the Google Play Store. With this latest version, users can now use their Google+ profiles within the app to +1 videos. Other forms of integration weren’t immediately obvious but we’re still poking around. Users can also look forward to new notification controls for TV playback.
You’ll be able to pause and skip to the next video in a queue without having to be within the YouTube app, a feature I personally wished for just yesterday as I watched SimCity Beta videos on my Xbox 360 while I was checking Twitter on my phone.
Finally, a bug fix for issues with full-screen playback has been issued. This is a pretty quick upgrade so get to it whenever you can. If, for whatever reason, you don’t have YouTube on your Android smartphone or tablet you can find it here in the Google Play Store.
