We recently reported that Microsoft has finally released a new YouTube app for Windows Phone, after long try to fulfill Google’s demands. But interestingly, Google has blocked the app and that has angered Microsoft executives. Now the Microsoft executives are accusing the search giant of trying to sabotage the Windows Phone platform.


Windows Phone

When Microsoft first released the new YouTube app for Windows Phone back in May, Google objected that it violated YouTube’s terms of service. Google apparently wanted Microsoft to tweak the way ads are displayed in the app.

Microsoft became relented and decided to work with Google to create a new app which would comply with the terms of service. However, now that Microsoft has released an app after working out these issues, Google has come out with a new objection to the app.

This time, Google wants Microsoft to create a YouTube app based on HTML5, a demand which is fairly astonishing and very unfair. According to Microsoft’s deputy general counsel David Howard, creating a YouTube app based on HTML5 is going to be ‘technically difficult and time-consuming.’

Howard further stated, “It seems to us that Google’s reasons for blocking our app are manufactured so that we can’t give our users the same experience Android and iPhone users are getting. The roadblocks Google has set up are impossible to overcome, and they know it.”

Google needs to come clear on this and state why is it trying to create roadblocks for Windows Phone. The interesting part is that even Google’s own YouTube apps for iOS and Android are not based on HTML5, which makes its demands to Microsoft even more unfair.
