YouTube for Android’s ephemeral pseudo-changelog


I’ve written before about corporations that don’t bother letting their customers know about changes to their apps or services. Just a quick update: changes in this area have not been for the better.

Here, for example, is the alleged changelog for YouTube’s Android App:

For new features, look for in-product education & notifications sharing the feature and how to use it!

What this means is that a little blue popup box will appear on your phone, pointing to part of the UI. And you’d better drop whatever you were doing and click on it, because you can’t get it back.

Updating the Play Store description, or providing some other kind of actual changelog that users could read before updating or refer to afterward, is apparently something that none of Google’s nearly 100,000 employees have time for.
