Google I/O 2012: The amount of things that Google have unleashed at Google I/O is amazing, with YouTube for Android 4.0 being shown off. The new app sports a bunch of new features, but requires Android 4.0 or higher to take advantage of them.
The app is available in 47 countries and sports a brand new UI with support for channels that reflects the redesign that YouTube's website received last year. YouTube for Android 4.0 can also precache videos from your favorite channels so that you can view them at a time that suits you better. In order to do this, all you do is select "preload" in the settings menu and it will pull down videos from your subscriptions and Watch Later queue when plugged in and on Wi-Fi.
Something else included is an integrated remote functionality which lets you control playback on connected TVs and other devices. This is said to also extend out to more than just Google TV, and Google have told us to "expect more updates later" on how this feature will become more broadly available.
