Microsoft Removes YouTube App From The Windows Store
The creation of Google’s applications for Microsoft’s mobile ecosystem is virtually now nonexistent. The applications that exist are mostly the result of Microsoft’s work, which has slowly passed to the developers responsible for creating them.
But a cleansing that is taking place, the tech giant Microsoft decided to remove the very popular video platform application from its official store, yes, it is the YouTube app, which was developed in partnership with the tech giant Google.
The application of YouTube designed for Windows Phone has a long history and which involved some disputes between Microsoft and Google. Initially, it was actually created by Microsoft which was quickly crushed by the API changes made by Google. Joining forces, Microsoft and Google have managed to create then a new version of the app, which was quickly abandoned by both parties.
With a clean running in the Windows applications store where you want to remove applications that are abandoned and have no updates a few years ago, Microsoft decided now to remove the YouTube application.
Given the limitations of this application, due to the own YouTube already provides on its website and applications in other systems, as it is no stranger to Microsoft option to remove this application from its store. Probably this was also an application already have few active users and therefore it will not be missed.
It already offers quite varied applications dedicated to the YouTube in its application store, hence, Microsoft’s decision is not unreasonable and can be easily justified.
The app “Mytube” Is an excellent example of a YouTube support application that is already present throughout the Microsoft ecosystem, having been developed in order to also be used on Windows 10, Surface Hub, and even in HoloLens.
This “cleansing” Microsoft is being done consciously and without regard to companies or developers. As you can see with this decision, it is no matter developers and companies that support them.
