Okay, so the YouTube app has been updated in the Google Play store today and this one was a little more sneaky than most. Seeing how the official YouTube app is already installed on your device, jumping into your apps list wont show you that an update is available. No, sir. You’re going to have to update this one manually by searching for the app yourself, and clicking update. Wasn’t so hard now, was it?

The update will bring the YouTube app up-to-date with version 2.4.4 (previously, 2.3.4) and although it doesn’t seem like all that much has changed, apparently, there is a new “HD option” for applicable pre-Honeycomb devices. I’m guessing this is for those of you with Samsung Galaxy Notes, given you’re the only ones with that big and beautiful HD display but still running Gingerbread. Let us know if you see the new HD option. Cheers!
