    New YouTube app eating up storage space Windows 8 phone

    I recently got the new official YouTube app downloaded on my Windows based phone, when I had 1.6 GB of memory left. After watching a few videos in HD on the app, low memory message started showing up. How can this be possible?

    The latest Youtube application is definitely bigger than the previous versions , naturally, as it offers additional features which was not there in earlier versions.

    That needs more space true, also if there were downloads of video files it should occupy space depending how big those files are or how many were downloaded.

    If you think you did not download video files, yet the space was occupied,

    Either Virus infection can create such problems, or there is some issue with Youtube that you have installed.
    Scan the drive and clean if virus infection found. If the problem persists , uninstall the Youtube App, restart the phone and then download and install another Youtube App.

    This should solve the issue.
