Google has pushed out a new version of its YouTube app for Android, and while most Android phones come with YouTube preloaded, the new version is available as a separate download from the Android Market. This is part of Google’s move to make it easier for users to update key apps without waiting for their phone company to upgrade to the latest version of the Android operating system… although the new app currently requires Android 2.2 and up.
