Rumors Indicate A YouTube Client Is In The Works For Switch

Posted by at 12:08 pm on November 6, 2018

Reports suggest that the Nintendo Switch is finally getting a long-awaited YouTube app very soon. Considering the next-gen console is approaching its second birthday in 2019, fans have been patiently waiting for Nintendo to improve the Switch’s streaming capabilities.

The Switch may offer amazing games like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but it can seem a little behind the times in other respects. Nintendo is still trailing behind when it comes to streaming services, and as it stands, Switch owners are limited to the likes of Hulu in America and Niconico in Japan.

According sources suggestions for a YouTube app are appearing on the Nintendo website when searching for games. Importantly, it’s also accompanied by the statement, “Coming: Nov 08, 2018.” It looks increasingly like that an official YouTube app is just around the corner for the Nintendo Switch.

Importantly, a YouTube app is a huge announcement for Nintendo Switch owners who live in the United Kingdom. Up until now, those living in the UK have been restricted to using the Switch almost exclusively as a gaming console.

Hulu launched on the Nintendo Switch in November 2017, so the timing couldn’t be better to add another streaming service to the console. While Hulu has its benefits, it’s hard to compete with the amount of choices that YouTube offers. In January 2018, Netflix downplayed the opportunity of a Switch app and said it was still exploring opportunities.
