YouTube update for new Symbian devices makes better use of the larger screens on these phones with fancier transitions. Google also released YouTube 2.1 for the Android phones that adds these new features:



* In-page playback: you can read the video description, browse related, rate or flag videos without having to interrupt video playback.
* Posting comments: you can post a comment while the video is playing, just like on the desktop website.
* Subscription updates: we've made it easier to access new videos from your subscriptions. If you are signed into your account, you will see all your subscription updates right on the home screen of the app.
* New full-screen UI: To enter full-screen mode simply rotate the phone. The new player controls make it easier to seek within the video, and you can pause or resume the playback by just tapping on the screen.

Go to the Android Market on your Android phone to get YouTube 2.1.
