Google+ comments show up in latest YouTube app for Android

YouTube update with Google Plus comments

Earlier today, Google announced that the new Google+ commenting system would be rolling out to YouTube users, replacing the old commenting system. What they didn’t announce was that the new Google+ powered commenting system would be coming to the latest version of the Android app so quickly. If you’re lucky enough to have the new LG Nexus 5, you already have the latest version of YouTube and need not worry. Those of us rockin’ anything but the latest Nexus will have to wait for the app roll-out.

From the latest YouTube app, you can:

  • Use your Google+ profile to share a comment on YouTube.
  • +mention a friend into the conversation.
  • Choose to share your comment on Google+ with your Circles or Public.
  • Enjoy nested comments.

Has the new YouTube for Android app rolled out to you yet? Let us know what you think of YouTube’s new Google+ integrated comment system.

    don’t you read previous stories?

      I think the emphasis here is to illustrate that the YouTube app for Android now features Google+ comments (not just desktop as previously reported), but only if you’ve got the Nexus 5.

      • N8ERSWORLD

        Yeah, I picked that up. Just thinking in general when a reader is scanning through story titles and images they may think it was already covered. Same image and “Google+ comments show up in latest youtube app” and “YouTube launches Google+ comments” are very similar.

        Just feedback. No pun intended. Keep up the great work!

          Using the same image was my bad. I’ll change it. Thanks.

    For those curious, you cannot sideload the N5 KitKat version of YouTube either.

  • picaso86

    This is a great idea by Google. Integrating Google+ comments in one the most use video websites. It might encourage more people to use Google+.

  • blackdreamhunk

    If you don’t sign up for Google plus they delete your comments

  • blackdreamhunk

    Google plus is nothing more than cooperate spy ware and Google is just proving they are anti freedom of speech. Google Plus is nothing more than cooperate spyware!!!

      Do you know what freedom of speech and spyware is?

  • goff0103

    I can’t post any comments on youtube because I refuse to add in information about myself on google+. What a bunch of facist scums.
