We reported earlier today that Microsoft updated its own YouTube app for Windows phone last week, over which, Google demanded the company to remove it on citing lack of advertisements. The result of which, now the Microsoft has responded to YouTube demands and mentioned that it will be “more than happy” to include ads if Google allows it. “We’d be more than happy to include advertising but need Google to provide us access to the necessary APIs,” says a Microsoft spokesperson.

Google earlier claimed that Microsoft’s YouTube app is violating the company’s YouTube API terms and conditions which results in reducing its own revenues that it will receive from ads along with the third-party content creators who being paying it via the company’s Adsense program. The search giant asked Microsoft to “immediately” withdraw this application from the Windows Phone Store and disable existing downloads of the application by Wednesday, May 22, 2013.

Well, now have to wait and watch and see what Google next move will be is.
