myTube 2 Windows Phone YouTubeSince Google does not have an official YouTube app for Windows Phone devices, unofficial app myTube has become the most used app to watch YouTube videos on Windows Phone 8.1. Developer Ryken Apps today released a major update to his MyTube app with many new features and improvements. The app has been completely rebuilt from scratch as a universal app for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. The rebuilt includes a brand new design along with the ability to play videos in 1080p, 480p and 60 FPS. Thanks to the new update, Windows Phone users can save the audio portion of a video to their device’s storage. The ability of signing in to multiple accounts was also added in the update. Here’s the complete list of what you’ll in the 2.0 update:

  • All new design
  • Ability to play videos in 1080p, 480p and 60 FPS
  • Ability to download only the audio portion of a video to save space
  • Ability to save videos to the SD card if your Storage Sense settings allow it
  • Open videos from the browser in myTube using IE’s share option (no need for the “Open in myTube” link, also works on non-YouTube pages that have YouTube videos embedded)
  • Support for signing into multiple YouTube accounts
  • Ability to view liked videos
  • Watch history now loads much faster
  • Videos start playing much faster
  • Ability to browse the app in landscape
  • Background downloads no longer have the file size or connection type limitations that were present in Windows Phone 8.0

As the developer clarified to WindowsCentral, “1080p videos are only available on phones with 720p+ screens. 60 FPS can be enabled in the settings, and is available on all phones, but may not be perfectly smooth on lower-end device such as the 520.”

myTube is available to Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 users through the Windows Store for those in need of a mobile YouTube app. The app cost $99 cent but also has a free version. The free version has a limit of 1 hour of video in every 3 hours, then you will have to wait 5 minutes to continue watching.
