Google updates YouTube app for iOS users for first time in two months

For the first time since December last year, Google has brought out an update for one of its major apps on iOS. The tech company has updated the YouTube app for its iOS users this week after about two months.

Media reports suggest that the update to the YouTube app was delayed but the reason for the same was not known. After the update, users of iOS started receiving errors and notification about their app being out of date when they tried to sign in with their Google account. This irked many users but the update removed the error and the warning and they could use the app again.

Google had earlier said in a blog post from last month that it would bring in labels to its apps with the new updates. It suggested that its iOS apps were updated either to fix bugs or add new features. The users of Google's iOS apps can check updates on the app page including the new privacy details.

The labels represented the categories of data that could be collected when the users access every feature and service of the Google apps, it said.

Further remarking on the privacy aspect, Google added that the users could always control their privacy settings as the company's products were about delivering helpful services to the users. They can make their changes by going to the Google apps they use on iOS phones or through their Google+ account.

Some other apps of Google including Translate, Authenticator, Classroom, and Stadia received their updates previously.

It is to be noted that Apple now requires the tech companies to apply privacy labels on their products for iOS users before they can update the existing apps. It was started on December 14.
