On Wednesday, Microsoft announced that a dedicated YouTube app is officially coming to Xbox One. Whether you use YouTube to get hints on how to pass a particularly difficult level of your favorite game, watch music videos, learn the fishtail braid or view upcoming movie trailers, it’ll all be available for you right on Xbox One.
You’ll have the same great content and the same great experience, such as the ability to stream vids in 1080p, just as you would on your PC. You’ll be able to find and watch whatever you want, and best of all, be able to do that in new, cool ways. You’ll be able to control the app with your voice, including playing, pausing and fast forwarding. You’ll be able to grab the screen to scroll through vid selections. You’ll also be able to stay up-to-date with all your favorite channels with Subscriptions.
In the coming months, the Xbox One team will add even greater functionality to the app, like Snap mode.
YouTube has made a huge mark on the way people consume videos on the Web, and we’re happy to be able to offer it on Xbox One. The app will be available on Nov. 22, when Xbox One launches (in all markets except Austria, Ireland and New Zealand – but those will be available in the coming days).
