Microsoft throws in the towel on Windows Phone YouTube app

Microsoft Windows Phone YouTube App

Microsoft has had enough of wrangling with Google for the time being. WPCentral notes that Microsoft has updated its homemade Windows Phone YouTube app so that it simply redirects users to the mobile YouTube website instead of a dedicated app. Google has been blocking Microsoft’s Windows Phone YouTube app for months now and the company has repeatedly accused its competitor of violating its terms of service by adding features that prevented ads from playing on YouTube videos. Although the two companies vowed to work out their differences, Google once again blocked the YouTube app back in August and we haven’t heard anything about the two companies making progress ever since.
