Nintendo Switch finally gets a YouTube app

As it nears its second birthday, Nintendo Switch finally has a YouTube app; after intentionally launching as a games only device with no media applications.

YouTube is available to download from the eShop right now, and can be used in docked or handheld mode. As with all other YouTube apps, login with your account to access your subscriptions, viewing history and playlists on Switch.

Switch is still yet to receive a Netflix app, let alone any Australian services like Stan. The only other media apps currently available are the US exclusive Hulu and Japanese NicoNico.
