New YouTube 5.0 Update Incoming – Entire New Card UI, Watch-While-Browsing Feature, and More

A new update to the official YouTube app on Android has started rolling out as version 5.0.21. To put it simply, the update is huge. It introduces an entirely new card-style UI, a way to continue watching videos while your browse, and more. A reader just tossed it over to us, so we’re digging through with jaws dropped and drool all over our desk. But so far, I think I can safely say that you’ll all be impressed.

It’s rolling out slowly through the terribly obnoxious new staged rollouts app delivery method, so if you want it now, you’ll have to sideload with the link below.

    NO ROOT NECESSARY. JUST DOWNLOAD DIRECTLY ON YOUR PHONE AND IT WILL INSTALL THROUGH SOME “PACKAGE INSTALLER” THING THAT I NEVER INSTALLED S I EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT. ITS FREAKIN BEAUTIFUL. IMPECABLE JOB GOOGLE. KUDOS

    Great update, but YouTube STILL hasn’t updated the comments section to allow for replying to comments, giving thumbs up/down and most importantly, seeing the highest rated comments at the top, similar to the desktop version!

    I really dig this update in the same way I dug the huge Google+ update. I just wish Google would standardize this look across all its service and especially with the Nexus lineup, particularly the Play Store, Gmail, and the Calendar. Hell, I wouldn’t even mind a card-influenced UI if done right (kind of like webOS but a million times better).

    Any way to have the sliding bar to the left show subscriptions by the collections in which they are organized as they are in the web interface rather than just listing all of them?

    I’ve made $64,000
    so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. Im using an
    online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money.
    It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it.
    Heres what I do,www.Jℴℬs34.cℴℳ

    I noticed when he opened the chromecast menu that his items were named. Mine says “Google TV1″, “Google TV2″, etc…. How the he11 do you name these things so I know which is which?

    • duke69111

      You can rename them using the chromecast app on your phone. I named mine upstairs and downstairs.

        I have two Google TV’s… Is there a way to rename them?

        • duke69111

          Open the chromecast app, click the first chromecast under your network. At the top it says name, click it and then rename it whatever you want. Repeat for the second one.
