“With users consuming more and more online video content every year, we believe it is important to let users experience quality content in new ways. We’re happy to work with YouTube to allow Xiaomi customers to watch the content they love uninterrupted. We hope this will be the beginning of a long standing relationship between us and YouTube that will ultimately benefit our users.”
