Windows Phone users can’t access YouTube Again!

No Youtube

The good YouTube app for Windows Phone is once again causing problems. Microsoft pulled the app in May after Google complained that it didn’t include ads. After working with Google, Redmond re-released the app a couple of days ago with ads this time. But Google still isn’t happy, and the company has revoked the API key the app uses, thereby disabling it.

In response, Microsoft has published a lengthy blog post about the disagreements between the two companies. Entitled “The limits of Google’s openness,” the post calls into question Google’s 2009 commitment to openness. Google claimed, in 2009, that its

“future depends on the Internet staying an open system, and [Google’s] advocacy of open will grow the Web for everyone—including Google.”
