    i dont think youve used anything other than google services or you'd have agreed with the rest of us
    I own and use Windows Phones, iOS, and Android devices. I will post pictures of them all for you right now if you'd like. I don't make up stories about owning a bunch of devices just to support my argument, like somebody else.

    as for the thread title:-
    why would i want an official youtube app? so google can sell my data? so google can show me nonsensical ads and finish off my data limit on 3G?for an app which will crash all the time ?

    i own ipads as well and the youtube app is a joke,i can only imagine how bad the app would be on wp
    even on my ipad i use Jasmine instead of the youtube app
    https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/jasm...pUvbUpU2785327
    ^^the best youtube app for ios

    Metrotube | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (India)
    YouTube HD | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (India)
    ^^the best youtube experience on windows phone

    i know this though - jasmine ,youtube hd and metrotube beat the official youtube app on ios and android any day

    None of those search results say that Google willingly built backdoors to their services for the NSA. Try reading them.

    Third is very old news, over a year and a half old. Things have changed drastically since then. Try something recent.

    MS only restricts Default browser useage... Nothing else... You can even set Google as the search engine on IE... No force to use Bing on IE... N we get only OneDrive, OneNote n maps preinstalled, which would have been the case even 3 years back... Coz phones have always promoted Cloud Storage, Navigation and notes apps...
    Look at Google... You get Newstand, Movies, Books, Music, Hangouts, G+, apart from gDrive, Notes and GMaps... They even want to force their News reader n Books reader on you... N now they will Double this List of apps...
    In Google Chrome you change default search engine by now MS is restricting this to only Bing only in many countries.

    MS is also forcing their services to users
    and Google is also doing the same.

    What you want to discuss about here that Google offer more services than MS or what?

    I still don't understand the purpose this discussing since both companies are forcing users to use their services.
    Are you trying say that MS isn't forcing users to use their service?
    if that case then you are completely wrong.

    because you can't uninstall MS apps in WP too like in Android.
    Here the list
    Office
    Map
    OneDrive
    Xbox Music( this the laggiest app I ever used)
    Video
    One Note etc....

    but why we are discussing these things.
    Google or MS apps both comes out of packet.

    Use it or not but they will be remain as part of OS.

    Dude,I just gave you detailed description as to how you can choose the default apps in WP, and you still say you can't change default apps. Did you even read the reply?

    MS doesn't give your data to NSA. Read the terms and conditions. If you have proof of your statement, please post a link.
    No you didn't. You told him how your phone asks you to pick an app to do something when you open a file. That is different than setting a default app. Setting a default app is like what I do in Windows 8 where I go to settings --> search and apps --> video and change Xbox video to VLC. Every time I open a video, it takes me directly to the Modern VLC app. Explain to me how I can do that on a Windows Phone (using moliplayer as an example) because I would very much like to know.


    Also, how do I change the search engine in IE because I can't find the setting.

    Explain those two things and I'll leave this thread forever.

    We'll interesting fact, if Google really was serious about giving your data to the NSA then they wouldn't have added out of the box encryption in Android L.

    Please get your facts straight.

    The FBI has also said that they're in contact with Google about creating a backdoor for law enforcement, so that's not a great argument.

    Got a link?

    Also, the FBI asking Google for a backdoor, and Google willingly building a backdoor into their services is a different thing all together.

    "Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey told reporters Thursday that the agency is talking to both companies to raise concerns that their privacy efforts could hinder criminal investigations."

    It's not definitive, but I would be surprised if the FBI didn't get it's way. It did with Yahoo about 5 years ago, it will with Microsoft in Ireland, and it probably will with Google and Apple. It's not really worth defending though as all companies do it. I don't care the reason they do it (whether it be willing or not), I just care that they do it.

    Yeah, they're not asking for a backdoor to all of their services, they just don't want full encryption being set as default on phones & tablets.

    Is your IQ lower than room temperature? Read your previous statement. You said you can't change the default apps in WP. I replied to that statement.

    Your comment
    "Can you change the default maps app on Android from Google maps to something else? No. Can you came the default navigation app? No. Can you uninstall Gmail? No."

    I simply stating to the fact that WP also do same thing.
    It look like your aren't aware of WP situation that is why you are commenting like that.
