Paranoid Android 5.1 Comes To Nexus Devices, Future Updates Will Likely Take Even Longer To Arrive

If you subscribe to a channel (or channels) on YouTube, chances are you find the experience of simply going through a list of that channel's videos incredibly annoying in the official Android app.

That is because it is something of a process to do this: open YouTube, hit the hamburger menu, scroll down to your subscriptions, pick the one you want, tap the "videos" tab, and then start looking.
