MyTube gets huge update with new design, Xbox One support, and much more

Popular third-party YouTube app myTube has picked up a pretty massive update, with a new design and complete rewrite. As if that weren't a big enough deal, myTube is also now available on Xbox One for the first time, offering a pretty compelling alternative to the YouTube app itself.

Other tidbits in the version 3.0 update include a bit of translucent blur that is reminiscent of Microsoft's Fluent Design flourishes, myTube to myTube casting, and much more. Here's a detailed look at some of what's new:

  • New, more modern and simpler UI
  • Launching on Xbox for the first time
  • Switch to and from background audio with zero pause
  • myTube to myTube casting: Cast from myTube on your phone to myTube on your PC or Xbox
  • Videos watched in myTube will now appear in your YouTube history
  • You can now select subtitle language
  • Channel search integrated into channel page
  • Option to use YouTube's official web player in order to support YouTubers financially
  • Main tile will now show subscriptions

A lot of these features have been in testing with the myTube Beta for quite a while, so it's good to see them make their way to the main app. If you're already a myTube user, then the app just got a whole lot better. If you have yet to give it a shot, however, you can check it out with a free trial on the Windows Store now.
