Just a short time after YouTube came to its knees for an hour and the whole world crumbled without videos of cats or ranting lunatics, Google YouTube Beta for Android users.
We're back! Thanks for all of your patience. If you continue to experience issues, please let us know. https://t.co/NVU5GP7Sy6

YouTube rolled out an official Play Store beta program for their YouTube app and you can join by either going directly to the application within the Play Store and scroll til you find the “Let Me In” link for the beta, or you can sign up directly through the beta page.
While, this may just be for server-side testing for users in the beta (like Facebook or Instagram), we are hoping that the beta does offer newer features like Chrome’s beta program offers. We will see with the first few updates roll out.
