YouTube might be appearing in the Nintendo Switch

While the Nintendo Switch is undoubtedly a hugely impressive console with a library of popular titles under its belt, when it comes to streaming it is decidedly underwhelming.

The good news is that if you only want to watch YouTube videos on your Nintendo Switch, there's no need to use the unofficial browser.

A YouTube app could be the second of many streaming apps to arrive on Nintendo's Switch.

At the moment, only Hulu is available on the Nintendo Switch. It now appears YouTube will indeed be making its way to Switch this week. It's not direct confirmation, but it appears to be a rather big hint.

The Nintendo Switch has been going from strength to strength since its launch a year ago, with a host of top-tier titles released for the hybrid console, but it still lacks numerous most popular apps you can find elsewhere. However, with the YouTube app, it will become a complete entertainment device. While this is not the first time YouTube has joined Nintendo's systems such as as the 3DS and the Wii U, it will be a great plus should Youtube come to the Nintendo Switch, whereby the only streaming app now is Hulu.

Despite this, the app has yet to be made available on Switch.

For whatever that's worth, a ResetEra moderator came into the thread to say that the information is in fact true.

According to the tweet and the image that posted along with it, a YouTube app will land on the Switch this Thursday, November 8.

After Youtube has been included, probably, Netflix may be the next to be added to Nintendo Switch.

A major streaming service like YouTube will certainly be welcomed on the platform.
