A YouTube app might be on its way to Nintendo Switch as early as next week.
A ResetEra poster shared a tweet from French YouTube site NintendHOME, which tweeted an image of a YouTube app button that was purportedly found in the recommended apps section on Nintendo’s website.

As you can’t see the full image in the embedded tweet above, click on the tweet and expand it, and you’ll see the a “coming soon” date below the app button.
According to my very rusty GCSE French, this translates as: “Rumor – the YouTube app is expected to arrive shortly on Nintendo Switch, more precisely on 8 November if we believe the Nintendo America website.”
Can pictures be faked? Of course. Is it possible this is faked? Sure, it’s very possible. I’ve not been able to locate any additional evidence supporting the claim, either, but an administrator at ResetEra popped into the thread and added – albeit without evidentiary support – “Yeah this is accurate. I’m pretty excited for it myself. Hopefully Netflix comes next”.
Whether it’s true or it’s not, we don’t have long to wait until we find out either way. Pop 8th November in the diary and brace yourself for delight or disappointment, depending upon what transpires.
