True to earlier reports and rumor suggestions, Nintendo has added a YouTube app to the Switch, and it’s available for download right now.
Users can now watch anything from YouTube’s extensive library while using their Switch in both docked and handheld modes. Switch owners with existing YouTube accounts can log into them on the console to access their subscriptions, viewing histories, playlists, and more.
On Monday, some Nintendo fans noticed a teaser for a Switch YouTube app on Nintendo of America’s website. Nintendo didn’t officially announce anything at the time, but Nintendo Europe and YouTube employees today noted the app’s availability.
“Kick back and relax with YouTube on your Nintendo Switch,” tweeted Nintendo. “Enjoy entertainment like music videos and shows, plus gaming live streams, how-to guides and much more. YouTube is now available to download from Nintendo eshop.”
YouTube is just the third streaming app on the mostly games-only Switch. While Switch still doesn’t have a Netflix app, the Switch got a Hulu app in 2017. The other video service on Nintendo’s console is the Japan-only Niconico.
