After the platform through streaming Hulu for selected regions, YouTube is the second video application that goes to the Nintendo Switch eShop around the world. The free download has a weight of 89 MB and supports traditional control via Joy-Con and Pro, as well as touch screens via a hybrid console.
The design of the application does not differ much from other consoles, such as PlayStation 4, and users do not need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to access it. Before this unexpected arrival there are many, if not all, those who ask themselves when Netflix? Well, Switch knows little about it, but about your home home console from 12 years ago.
Recently Netflix has notified its users that Nintendo will suspend all services streaming for Wii, Netflix and YouTube, after January 31, 2019. The message ends: "We hope you will soon enjoy even better Netflix support with additional features on a compatible device."
If this may refer to a wink to the Switch, it remains visible, but the fact is that at that time the Wii was the most popular video game console to watch Netflix (dethroned by PS3), so it's only natural that the company streaming they look similar in the latest Nintendo system, which also offers home and portable advantages.
