Google has rolled out  a new version of its YouTube app for Android, with a retooled user interface that lets you view video descriptions, rate videos, or browse for related videos without stopping playback of the video you’re watching. YouTube 2.1 also lets you post comments while ea video continues to play.

The update also makes it easier to seek in a video in full-screen mode (which is what you get when you tilt the phone sideways while a video is playing), and shows the latest videos from your subscriptions on the home screen if you’re logged in.

YouTube 2.1 for Android is available as a free download from the Android Market for Android 2.2 and up.

In related news, the official YouTube app for Symbian has also received an update, offering better video quality and support for the latest Symbian devices.
