3 has announced it has reached an agreement with YouTube for the launch of the new enhanced version of YouTube for Mobile in the UK.

The enhanced YouTube for Mobile, only available in the UK via 3, claims to be the largest mobile video catalogue available and now boasts new features including local UK content and improved video streaming.

YouTube regulars will no doubt be pleased to note they can now sign into their YouTube accounts to retrieve favourite videos, comment, share, add and rate videos using your mobile.

YouTube can be accessed directly from the "3 Launcher" on most 3 Handsets or via Planet 3 - meaning for 3ers YouTube's content is not more than two taps of a button away.
