It hasn’t even been that long since the YouTube app for Windows Phone was released and for a few reasons Google isn’t happy. According to The Verge who have obtained a copy of a letter sent from Google, they want the app removed.
The complaint letter details that the main issue is the lack of adverts within the Windows YouTube app and the ability to download videos, which Google is claiming is a direct violation of terms and conditions of the YouTube API. The story goes on to state that Microsoft made the app without Google even knowing about it. This is of course a big oops on Microsofts part. Then again following recent adverts from Microsoft attacking Google, it’s fair to say things are a bit awkward between the two.
Google is giving Microsoft until May 22nd to remove the app and block installations of the app on devices. More on this story as it develops.
