Nintendo Japan has announced the termination of the YouTube app for 3DS on September 3, 2019. The application will also be removed from the eShop on this date.

It is very likely that the announcement concerns all regions. Only in May we reported that the app does not work at all and crashes right at the start.

The mobile website for the New Nintendo 3DS, as well as the Wii-U and Switch versions are not affected.

It's worth downloading the app if you haven't already, since its memory requirements make it a useful target for the Homebrew Launcher under *hax.

Or at least, that might be the case if anyone had the slightest interest in *hax anymore. :P

The 3DS version gets killed because any YouTube pages can quickly result in a crash.
It's almost impossible to watch a video with this app, breaking its purpose.
It crashed ever since YouTube changed their generic webpages, including CSS and JS, which the super outdated "browser" that is the YT app, cannot handle very well.

This is just a speculation and I guess I could be horribly wrong here.

EDIT: Actually, you could crash it before that change occured by tapping the Google logo. Either you got the Google search or garbage text and a crash afterwards.
