The title is fairly misleading. Its not solely on Google's decision to drop supports on older devices. Apple was not willing to renew the contract with Google and had to remove Youtube and Google maps from iOS. This was meant to be happen obviously. The "old" youtube api on atv2 is 7 years old and now everythings moving towards html5. I dont know about old iPhones but i wish Apple could do something about atv2

So what happens to those who have older iphone that cant support ios 7 or higher ? They need to buy nee phones ?

You'll need to either jailbreak, have developers account to get new api youtube app, or hope google to support old api again

Remember the day when YouTube didn't have any problems even without plus or even the comment style? Now is can't be used on most devices? Now I have to update.

Screw Google. Who cares. Install KODI on any other device and fly freeeeee!!!!

Why go through the headache of jailbreak a 720p - if possible, when I can get an amazon TV and install KODI at 1080i, no jailbreak needed for 40 bucks? I sold my iTV for $200 at a good time!

Wow. Google is doing this on purpose. Atv2 isn't very old. Y stop supporting it?
Sona - April 21, 2015 at 4:52pm
Its not Google. Its the Apple not updating atv2 to support new youtube's api. atv3 has been updated to support the new api but not atv2. Not exactly sure why Apple is not willing to update atv2.
