If you’re noticing that your YouTube icon on your Android device looks a little different, don’t worry, you don’t have one of those icky viruses that have (supposedlybeen pestering millions of Android devices. What’s actually happened is that Google has accidentally let out a test build of the YouTube app for public release.

This is probably temporary, and we’re assuming it will be fixed as soon as possible, but I’ve yet to notice any crashes or bugs in the test build. If you do have the app, please do enjoy the complementary dog food.

Note: YouTube app may not include actual dog food.

Have you picked up your dog food?

    what new features does it include

      None, as far as I can work out.

    I saw this after I factory reset my Note 3 to hopefully resolve some battery drainage issues on 4.4.2, and thought for a second that the reset messed something up but quickly brushed the thought off. Now I know what happened. It’s a rare chance to play around with a test build. Hopefully the good folks over at Android Police can do a teardown and let us know what new features are coming.

  • They’ve since released the non-dogfood version.

      I don’t know if I’m happy or disappointed :P

      • Disappointed, apparently it doesn’t have any of the new features.
