Yesterday’s update to the YouTube app for Android not only brought the app up to version 2.2.14 but also added several new features that have long been requested.

Aside from bug fixes and performance improvements, the new version extends more control for uploaded content. For instance, users can now make changes to the title and description of their uploaded videos. Privacy settings can also be edited, which means users can specify which videos can be viewed by the public at large and which videos to show only to a restricted audience.

With new functionality for playlists, YouTube app users can now queue their videos. Playlists can now be created, edited, or deleted on the go. Users will also be able to use a new integrated interface when uploading videos using the app.

The most recent version of the YouTube app is now available on the Android Market.

Have you updated to the latest version? Is it any better than the earlier versions?
