Google updates apps in market!

| December 8, 2010 | Reply

Today Google updated market apps for their YouTube, and  Google Voice search. Mostly bug fixes are why the updates were issued but in the YouTube app one major improvement was added, Commenting from inside the YouTube app its self! Also an “All” category was added to the browse screen. Voice Search brought along with it better name recognition and mainly “Improved Connectivity”.  If you want to dig deeper into the change log for each Google provided a link to get all the details! The new YouTube app is also the one stated to come pre loaded on Gingerbread and the Nexus S. Drop us a comment below if you have tried out the new updates and give us your thoughts.

The YouTube for Android and Google Voice Search applications have been updated (no it’s not Gingerbread! :p ) with some welcome improvements and the obligatory bug-fixes.  With the YouTube app update comes what everyone has been wanting, commenting from within the app itself.  You also can now see videos you subscribe to on the main screen, and an “All” category has been added to the browse screen.  Add in some bug-fixes and the app really gets better, even if all we care about is commenting.

The Voice Search app also brings some very nice improvements, namely “improved connectivity” to squash some of those connection errors many now see, and better name recognition when using Voice-Actions.  We all welcome those kind of changes.  Of course, the bug-fixes are there, too. You can update right from the market, or hit the download links after the break. [Android Central Forums]

Update: Google has posted the full changelog, which you can find here.  Also worth mentioning – “Please note that the new YouTube app only works on devices running Android 2.2. To install it, search for ‘YouTube’ in Android Market. It also comes pre-installed on many upcoming Android 2.3 devices, such as the Nexus S.
