Microsoft in response to Google’s cease and desist letter has released an update to their YouTube app for Windows Phone. Google issued a cease and desist letter in which it asked Microsoft to withdraw the YouTube app as it violates YouTube’s terms of service.
The new update pushed by Microsoft addresses only part of the Google’s concerns. They removed the video download feature of the app, but the main concern of absence of Ads is yet to be addressed. Absence of Ads in the YouTube app is something that affects not only Google’s revenue but also the publishers who monetizes their videos to get a regular revenue stream.
