myTube! 4.0 Pro (UWP) to be free for v3 purchasers, claim now!

Published by at

Last covered a year ago(!), myTube! 4.0 UWP is now apparently (and finally) imminent. This is/was arguably the most polished YouTube client for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 Desktop, and we now have details from the developer on how monetisation is changing. Summary? It's moving to a 'pay monthly or pay once for life to go Pro' model, but the main thing to note is that if you've already bought it then you can upgrade to the full myTube! Pro for free now via an in-app button. So that, when v4.0 appears, you'll already be seeing the full myTube! experience and won't be nagged to pay again... ever.

From the developer:

Hi everyone, myTube has been updated to version 3.5.35 with minor bug fixes. It's not a particularly exciting update, but I am gearing up for the myTube 4.0 update, which should finally be ready to launch some time in December! As part of the transition to myTube 4.0, you may receive an in-app notification telling you that you're eligible to receive myTube Pro for free, which will be myTube 4.0's in-app purchase.

And then more details in the application itself:

With the 4.0 update, myTube will be made free to download on the Store, no longer costing $0.99 up front. Instead, there will be an addon that you can purchase from within the app called myTube Pro, which will unlock several additional features! myTube Pro will cost either $0.99 monthly, or $6.99 just once to keep it forever! The app will also be moving away from donations with the 4.0 update. 

If you currently own the full version of myTube, even if you got it for free on sale, you'll be able to receive myTube Pro for free! So you won't have to worry about having to pay for myTube Pro if you've already bought myTube, but you still will need to click a button or two to get myTube Pro for free.

The app should show a notification at launch letting you know that you're eligible to receive myTube Pro, just click on the notification and it'll take you to the Windows Store to aquire it. You won't be able to use myTube Pro in this version of myTube, but it'll be ready for you once myTube 4.0 launches. 

I checked myTube on my Lumia 950 and indeed:


I'm eligible, good-oh... Tapping the link takes me through to the 'myTube! Pro Lifetime' (free) purchase. Done. Now sit back and wait for the big v4.0!

myTube is currently just $1 in the Microsoft Store, so grab it now and claim the free upgrade, if you haven't already done so. I'll report more on myTube! when v4.0 launches officially.
