The feud between Microsoft and Google resulted in Google making either no apps featuring its service else just an useless web-wrapper like the Youtube App.
If you remember, Microsoft had announced it plans for cleaning the Windows Store. It seems like they are now just not focusing on third-party apps.
I personally like the step taken by Microsoft, because the company in 2013 had tried to make a full featured Youtube App which was shut down by Google twice. It seemed like Google did not want the Windows Phone Users to enjoy the services like the Android and iOS users do. To solve this problem, Microsoft optimized the browser in Windows Phone 8.1 to get the best use of Youtube site since google had denied in making a proper app.
If YouTube is unblocked at your work location or school, here are some way to Unblock Youtube
Nevertheless, there are better Youtube 3rd Party apps found in Store, that would include MyTube, MetroTube, TubeCast and a lot more.
Are you happy by this decision? Let us know.
