The Nintendo Switch is an immensely popular console. In the USA, streaming service Hulu is available via an official Switch app, while video on-demand service Niconico is available in Japan. Nintendo has since removed the listing, which was captured by tipster NintendoHOME and shared on Twitter.

NintendHome (via Resetera) spotted the YouTube app on the suggested apps section of the North American Nintendo website.

If reports from ResetEra is to be believed, YouTube is planning to make a debut for Nintendo Switch. Everything suggests that the situation will change very soon, as the Nintendo console is about to receive YouTube compatibility.

Although the Nintendo Switch is designed for gaming but it wouldn't hurt to have a video streaming app for the users so, they can relax and watch a few videos before starting again.

The Nintendo Switch was released back in March of 2017, since then owners of the Switch have been waiting for the release of YouTube on their handheld systems. One such feature is a native YouTube app, which has surprisingly been absent since the console's launch in March of past year. "And that's what enabled us in the first 12 months in the United States to be the best-selling home console in the history of video games".

Despite this, the app has yet to be made available on Switch. In addition to YouTube, the Switch will be receiving a new subscription service for comics called InkyPen, which is exclusive to the platform. As to whether this information is true, we can only wait till 8 November to see if it'll be released in the Switch.
