YouTube is now available for the Nintendo Switch, and can be downloaded in the eshop.
This is the second app, following Hulu, for the platform.

What are your thoughts?
If you have downloaded it, what do you think? How are you likely to use this?

Eh ?!
If that true, then say hello to Youtube and Google.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

@Anti-Matter
Yeah I didn't think of that. If there's YouTube, Google could potentially have something like chrome

I hope it's coming. It should've been there at launch. I won't use it a lot, but it would get enough use. And I know others want it too.

This will make Switch the 18th device in my house capable of YouTube. Can't see myself ever using it on Switch, though (just like more than half the other devices I have that can).

Switch - Torna: The Golden Country, Sonic Mania, Paladins, NES Online (Dr. Mario only)
3DS -
PC - Nier: Automata, Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat XL

I really like it. I often watch YouTube while drinking my morning coffee before work. But booting my PC up and then going to Youtube usually takes a precious 5-8 minutes. But the Switch can get going in less than 1 or 2 minutes. Seems like a small difference but it's relevant to me. So I'd very much prefer using YouTube on the Switch.

I hope we get it. And I hope getting it encourages Netflix, Twitch and Crunchyroll to follow.

Yes, I know those apps are on plenty of other systems and devices, but so what? Why do so many people get angry that some of us would like them on Switch too?

Would be cool to watch directs on the Switch itself.

It'll be there as an option. Say you're on a bus/train with Wi-Fi, you get a notification a Direct's about to start and either your phone's out of juice/not with you or you just want a bigger screen to watch, your Switch should come in handy.

Course, whether the app's good enough or if the train/bus' wi-fi is good enough is another story. XD

Be neat though if we could upload our clips directly to YT.

@bluemage1989 Technically you can do it in news, but that isn't live, so I know what you mean

Called battery drain and if you don't have Public wifi access forget YT usage. So to have YT your smart phone will have to login to the wifi and switch to hotspot for your Switch to use wifi. I know I test this. So it sounds good but Switch doesn't have a Browser to login before you can use the wifi. This is what will limit any YT apps. No pubic wifi access no YT or Hulu that the fact they aren't telling you.

Switch can access browser-verification hotspots, though. I do it once a month at a hospital. Access is dependent on the network, not the Switch.

@SwitchForce Yeah, @HobbitGamer is right. The switch can access browser hotspot logins. It has a browser, Nintendo just doesn't support it.

@MasterJay I quite like the news channels always read any updates even though i see most of it here and like/dislike. Must be a good way to see feedback from owners.

@BeetonTheRobot What do you mean proper? Was that hatin on 3DS now. What you should be more concern about is that the screen playback will look better on the Switch screen.

@SwitchForce What I meant was that everytime I play an hour-long video, the top screen is all black while the audio is still playing. Whether it's limitations or a glitch, I'll never know for sure. And don't worry, I still love my 3DS despite that small little issue.
