    Unfortunately, this new version has one big drawback…it now automatically starts when the phone or tablet boots up. As Google clearly states in the Permissions section, this will have the effect of slowing down the performance of the phone or tablet.
    Thanks but no thanks. I’ll pass on the update.

      I did the update last night, and have rebooted by phone, and there is no sign of YouTube running in the background at all.

    So far user reviews @ Play Store mostly negative, I think I’ll stick with old version for awhile until more feedback comes in.

    Updated and now there are a bunch of “Youtube Recommends” videos in my subscribers list of videos. Pretty annoying, is there a way to uninstall the update and go to the previous version through google play ?

    I miss the tabs on the watch screen. Everything is in the one panel and the comments don’t load automatically when you get to the bottom of the page.

    Have you guys noticed the new “camera” permission?
    “Allows the application at any time to collect images the camera is seeing”.
    I personally will not be updating as long as that permission is around.

    At least us LG Optimus 2X users have something to be happy about…Froyo still gets some sort of update…I guess…lol

    @Mike: If you are so lucky as to have Titanium Backup or other such program you can roll back to previous version. Also if you look around on 4 shared or ? you might find the previous version. FWIW
