New YouTube Android API Adds Full YouTube Experience to Third Party Apps (Video)

Trying to watch a YouTube video on an Android device outside of Google’s official app can be a bit of a chore. However, Google has worked out a solution. Likely buried by all of the hype surrounding the announcement of the Nexus 7 and Nexus Q, Google announced a new YouTube API for Android. This new programing interface allows third parties to integrate a complete YouTube player into their Android applications.

This new platform supports Google TV and devices running Android 2.2 or higher. In addition to lending app developers a helping hand, Google’s new API also ensures that YouTube content partners get paid for having their videos viewed. This should definitely set well with the video sharing site’s community of content producers.
