The YouTube application on Nintendo Switch.

Whereas, for more than a year, users have had to compete tips for watching YouTube from their Switch, Google has finished with designing an app for YouTube for the Switch.

It is available as a free download on the eShop of Nintendo, and offers most of the features that players have been waiting for.

It is also interesting to note that the YouTube app is not really optimized for a touchscreen use, and this despite the support of the 360-degree video. Therefore, we advise you to use the sticks and buttons of the console.

Also note that subscribers to the Youtube service Premium, cannot (yet) watch YouTube videos in offline mode, or listen to them via a screen saver. If you are one of them, then you will need a Wi-Fi connection to enjoy the application.

Now that YouTube is available on the Nintendo console, we hope that the services Netflix and Amazon Prime will be too soon.
