It took a while, but the YouTube app has finally arrived on Switch. Following a leak earlier this week suggesting the app would debut this week, it was proven to be true and is available to download for all.
The app is available to download for free through the Nintendo eShop, and the following is the description:
“Kick back, relax and enjoy all of YouTube on your Nintendo Switch. There’s entertainment for everyone, like music videos, movies, gaming live streams and the latest viral sensations. Explore a world of videos with personalized recommendations and easy access to your channel subscriptions. So grab your friends, family and your controller, and enjoy YouTube together.”
This is now the second major video app to arrive on the console, with the Hulu app debuting on the console in November of last year. It will be interesting to see if any of the other major video apps arrive on the console, as the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are still absent. It’s possible that either of these could arrive in the future, but we’ll just have to wait and see at this point.
