Google updates YouTube after months of waiting

Google has released an update of the YouTube app for iOS, the first update since Apple asked developers to publish privacy labels months ago.

The latest version of YouTube includes bug fixes and performance improvements, according to release notes provided by Google. The app card also includes privacy labels, now mandatory for all new apps and new updates released on the App Store.

YouTube labels inform users about the data being monitored (contact information, identifiers), as well as those related to the user’s identity (location, contacts, browsing history, etc …). Some of this information had already been added a few weeks ago, prior to today’s update.

Among Google’s most popular apps, YouTube is the first to be updated since Apple began requiring so-called “nutrition labels” for privacy. The appeal lacks titles like Gmail, Chrome, Google Maps, Google Drive and Google Search.

The labels are designed to give users a deeper insight into how their data is being leveraged by developers. According to the rules imposed by Apple, the developer must let people know what data is collected by themselves or by third parties and detail how that information could be used.

YouTube is available for free on the App Store.
