myTube for Windows 8.1 arrives in beta for everyone

Community favorite YouTube app myTube, is making the jump from Windows Phone to Windows 8.1. A true universal app, myTube for Windows is now in beta, and anyone can join in and test.

Anyone looking to test myTube for Windows 8.1 will first need to download the beta app here, then follow these instructions:

  • Once the download is complete, extract the .zip file and open the folder its contents were extracted to.
  • Right click on the file named "Add-AppDevPackage" and click "Run in PowerShell" from the menu.
  • If you asked to register for a developer license, or any window appears asking for a Microsoft Account, just use the MS account you are currently signed into your PC with.
  • Once the PowerShell script completes, you should see "myTube Beta" in your applications list.

As with any beta, there are some bugs and rough feature implementations. The developers notes that the current click-and-drag system for moving between screens is in pretty rough shape, though users with precision touchpads on newer devices should be able to change pages by scrolling left and right.

Are you excited for myTube to come to Windows? Let us know in the comments.
