Google blocks Microsoft’s new YouTube Windows Phone app
Microsoft’s recently released YouTube application for Windows Phone is being blocked by Google. In a statement issued to The Verge, Google confirms that the application has been blocked for violating the terms of use. Despite the two companies collaborating on an app based on HTML5, Microsoft’s app is still breaking YouTube’s terms of use. “Microsoft has not made the browser upgrades necessary to enable a fully-featured YouTube experience, and has instead re-released a YouTube app that violates our Terms of Service,” says a spokesperson. “It has been disabled. We value our broad developer community and therefore ask everyone to adhere to the same guidelines.”
