YouTube for iOS Updated For iOS 7, Brings New Video Quality Options

youtubeWith the release of iOS 6, Apple may have removed its YouTube App from the table, but that didn’t stop Google from developing their own standalone version, available on the Apple App Store. And now, Google has updated the App, making a few improvements for iOS 7 compatibility, and adding a few features.

With the update, you can now manually set a specific video quality, by tapping the 3 dot icon in the top right of your screen. This can be done over Wi-Fi, or while tethered to another device, but not on cellular data, and will let you set a specific quality that will remain consistent throughout that video, though this video quality will not be set throughout the App.

The update also includes improvement for compatibility with iOS 7, as well as accessibility improvements for the visually or audibly impaired.

This updates the App to version 2.2.0, with the followingyoutube

* Choose your video quality while on Wi-Fi
* Accessibility improvements
* iOS 7 compatibility improvements

The latest update shows us that Google hasn’t given up on its official iOS App, and will keep updating it to keep up with the rest of the OS.
