Today, myTube got a new update, featuring a new app design and more features for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, and Windows Phone 8.1. myTube is a popular third-party app for YouTube that allows you to continue to watch YouTube videos that fade in the background while you add your comments and share them without the need to stop the YouTube video.
The new redesign of the myTube app is not the only addition to the newest update. Here are the new features added for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, and Windows Phone 8.1:
Based on the myTube changelog, here’s what’s new in the version

  • Adds video uploading to YouTube
  • Video files can be shared to myTube for easy uploading
  • Adds ability to delete your own videos from YouTube
  • Adds ability to like/dislike comments
  • Adds ability to search within a channel’s videos (press the search button while on a channel page)
  • Adds option to pick if the app shows video details, comments or suggested videos when a video is finished
  • Adds ability to select multiple videos in a list and perform actions on them
  • Fix for “accept” button on sign-in page being inaccessible for some users

  • Fixes issue where annotations didn’t fade away when the video was being played in the background
  • Fixes issue where a blank thumbnail was shown on channel upload notifications (tablets and PCs)
  • Fixes issue where videos with more than 2.1 billion were shown as having 0 views
  • Fixes issue where the saved videos list wouldn’t show more than 30 videos
  • Adds “…” bar to make opening the app bar easier on Windows 10 (tablets and PCs)
