It’s no secret that the Nintendo Switch is missing plenty of applications. Besides Hulu, there isn’t much in the form of entertainment options besides games on the Switch. That could be changing soon though. A new rumor suggests that a YouTube Switch app could be coming soon.
According to the Nintendo centric blog, Nintendo Everything, if you browse at the bottom of certain pages on the Nintendo website you will find a suggested applications section that features the YouTube app.
The picture shows the YouTube logo with a date underneath suggesting that the app will be available on Nintendo Switch November 8th. That’s remarkably soon. It seems strange that Nintendo or YouTube themselves would not make a bigger deal about the application coming to the console.
We have listed this as a rumor only because we have not been able to replicate the same suggested application box when visiting Nintendo’s website. However, it’s possible that Nintendo has since taken down the suggested application.
This wasn’t the only post that suggests that YouTube may be coming to Switch. Eurogamer has shared a post via ResetEra that shows a tweet from French YouTube site NintendoHome. The tweet also suggests that the YouTube app will be coming to the Switch on November 8th.

It won’t take long for us to find out if the rumor pans out to be true, as the release is set for this Thursday. Which also adds to the credibility of the rumor as most new apps hit the Nintendo eShop Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Hopefully, the report is real as this app would be perfect for Switch. Personally, I watch tons of YouTube on my phone and having a bigger portable screen to watch some of my favorite content creators would be nice.
