Nintendo Switch has been strengthening since its launch last year, with a lot of games released, but it still lacks many of the popular applications that you can find on other devices.
One of the missing applications is YouTube, but this could be solved in the very near future: some Switch users have seen that YouTube appears in the “Suggestions” section of the Nintendo website, available from November 8. It is not a direct confirmation, but it seems to be a fairly obvious suggestion.
We don’t have anything official about YouTube or Nintendo, but we do know that Netflix and YouTube features were previously included in a list of “The best Nintendo Switch purchases”. The list was subsequently modified to eliminate these two transmission services.
Will Netflix be next?
Even with the solid line of new games that appear continuously, it would make a lot of sense for Nintendo to add to the advantages of Netflix or YouTube, allowing users to relax and watch some videos to rest from their gaming sessions.
At the moment, Hulu is the only streaming service that can be obtained on Nintendo Switch, and is only available in the United States. Hopefully the arrival of YouTube on the Nintendo Swift (if it really appears) is the beginning of new services that appear on the portable console. The services of Spotify and Amazon Prime Video would certainly also be welcome.
Given that the Switch can be connected to a TV, this would be another way to make YouTube and maybe YouTube Music, also appear on the big screen. We will have to wait and see what happens next Thursday, November 8.
