YouTube app for Windows Phone blocked by Google, again

Windows Phone YouTube app
Only two days have passed since Microsoft released their updated YouTube app that was supposed to have been developed in collaboration with Google. However, today, Google has decided to block the app from being used on their YouTube service.

Google claims that the updated app still does not comply to their developer's agreement and therefore has blocked access to YouTube for everyone using the Microsoft Windows Phone app.

Since Google has not shown any interest whatsoever so far for developing an YouTube app for Windows Phone, this probably means that Microsoft has to once again update their YouTube app and hope that it complies with the developer's agreement. 

While indeed there are no official YouTube app at this time for Windows Phone, there are many third party YouTube apps that apparently do work fine on Windows Phone Store for users to use in the meanwhile.
