YouTube iOS app updates with suggestion overlays, live captioning

updated 04:02 pm EDT, Thu June 20, 2013

Brings app closer to parity with desktop website

Google has updated its official iOS YouTube app to v1.4, making a pair of significant changes. Perhaps most important is the addition of suggestion overlays, which recommend clips to watch next. The feature brings the iOS app closer to par with the desktop website.

Similarly the app now supports closed captioning for live streams, not just fixed-length clips. Other changes are minimal, only fixing stability glitches which sometimes caused the app to crash. YouTube is a free download, and runs on devices supporting iOS 6 or later.
