The switch, supposedly a portable slot machine, but nominally a Wi-Fi tablet, seems to be a perfect platform for smartphone-style apps. But strangely enough, Hulu has been the only major video service for the switch so far. YouTube joins the fight today.
Google has released an official YouTube app, now available on Nintendo eShop. You can download it directly from your switch or sign in online and send it to your device. The app is of course free and will be displayed after installation like any game on the switch home screen.
The UI is essentially the same as any set-top-box YouTube app, even if the switch's display keyboard and keyboard are awkward Controls focused on the keys make finding objects a breeze. If you're looking for a way to get YouTube videos on your TV, a Chromecast or similar device is much faster and easier.
But for a quick gameplay on your Nintendo Switch, when you're on the road it works well enough. And the switch is now one step closer to the tasks of the Media Center at home, as is the case with other consoles. How about Netflix?
