After being leaked earlier this week, confirmation has come from Nintendo itself: YouTube is officially heading to the Nintendo Switch, and it’s available now.
In a statement released by Nintendo of Europe’s Twitter account, one of the world’s biggest content hubs is finally hitting the system after much speculation since the launch of the system. “Kick back and relax with YouTube on your Nintendo Switch. Enjoy entertainment like music video and shows, plus gaming livestreams, how-to guides and much more”, the gaming giant mentions in the previously mentioned tweet.

YouTube joins Hulu as one of only two content streaming services available on the hybrid system. Google’s video service has been one of the most asked for entertainment apps for the console since its release, along with Netflix. Netflix has been continuously rumored to eventually hit the platform as well, even with multiple rumors stating that the streaming service is “ready to go” whenever Nintendo is.
To download the YouTube, visit Nintendo’s eShop via the Switch’s homepage. For updates on more streaming services heading to the Switch, follow us on Twitter at @BonusAccessory, and keep it right here on Bonus Accessory.
