    For those on the latest firmware, the Switch has little to offer in terms of multimedia entertainment. Currently limited to just the Hulu app (and the niconico app on the Japanese eShop), things may be about to change if Nintendo enthusiast NintendoHOME is to be believed. Claiming to have seen a notification of the app's arrival for the 8th of November, it spells hope for those wanting more than just a games system.

    This should be taken with a reasonable degree of uncertainty, with images easy to fake and myself not being able to locate any further information. You can check out the translated tweet below, and find the original via the source link.
    Do you think it's real? Are you still waiting for Netflix before updating your Switch? Let us know below!

    That'd be a dumb move from Nintendo if it requires the subscribtion

    It definitely won't need a Nintendo Online subscription. It uses Google's own servers.

    I doubt they'll make that mistake again.

    why
    they'll likely use the same version they have on the ps4, xbox one, smart TVs, etc, which is a custom application rather than a browser wrapper

    I rather have a Web browser so I can open youtube while playing a game.

    But it's something, better than nothing.

    ikr, when you will be stuck somewhere in a game...
    It'll be annoying to save, close the game, open youtube, then close youtube, open the game, just to realise...
    what did the playthrough said already???

    It'll eventually be released, I'd guess.

    We're just missing it now on microwaves, freezers and windows. lol

    During the early days of 360's online membership, it was required to have an XBLG subscription but then Microsoft made it free for all users. As it should have always been.

    YouTube is practically on every modern device nowadays and not currently being on the Switch isn't really a big deal.

    This is great news because so few of us have a mobile device which runs Youtube.
