Nintendo Switch May Be Getting A YouTube App This Week

  • YouTube for Nintendo Switch Coming on Novemeber 8th

Over a year after the console launched, Nintendo fans are still waiting for the Switch to get media entertainment.

As of right now, the biggest streaming application on the Nintendo Switch is Hulu... and that's pretty much it. But that could all change with the launch of YouTube for the Switch, which is purportedly scheduled to launch as soon as this week.

NintendHOME shared an image of a button reportedly seen on the official Nintendo of America website, which lists YouTube as a recommended app for Switch, complete with a November 8 release date. French Nintendo Twitter account NintendHome posted a screenshot that is supposedly a leak from the Nintendo USA site show the Youtube app as coming soon.

This isn't the first time YouTube and Nintendo some in close proximity to each other: YouTube has been previously included on a Best Buy Nintendo switch listing before but the listing was modified and the feature was removed.


If true, that app will have arrived almost two years after the console was launched in March 2017, which is certainly a very long time for such a seemingly simple app to be ported on to a console, which, even more amusingly, is reportedly Nintendo's easiest platform to develop for.

Having the YouTube app on Switch would be an excellent addition to the console that owners have been wanting for a while now. If YouTube would indeed come on Nintendo Switch, that would be excellent. Many users have been requesting a Netflix app, but the last word from Netflix in January was that the company was still "exploring the opportunity" and holding discussions with Netflix about an app.

The console is meant for gaming.

If the rumors are true, YouTube should be launching on November 8. This is the strong rumor doing the rounds and though neither Nintendo nor YouTube owner Google has officially made any confirmation on the news, it does appear a certainty.
