The switch, a portable slot machine, but nominally a Wi-Fi tablet, seems like a perfect platform for smartphone apps. But strange, Hulu has been the only major video service on the switch so far. Today, YouTube is participating in the game.
Google has released an official YouTube app and is now available in Nintendo eShop. You can download it directly to your Switch, or log in to the network and send it to your device. The app is free of course, and it will be on your Switch home screen as a game after you install it.
The interface is basically the same as all YouTube sets with set-top boxes, even though the switch's on-screen keyboard and button-based controls actually find something a bit of a job. If you're looking for a way to get YouTube videos on your TV, a Chromecast or similar device is much faster and easier.
But for a quick game change on your Nintendo Switch when you work out, it works well enough. And the power switch is now a step closer to managing the media center service at home, as other consoles can. Now, what about Netflix? Source: Nintendo eShop via Thurrott.com
