Those of you who have been hoping for more apps on the Nintendo Switch like you have on PS4 and Xbox One may be getting your wish soon. According to a French Nintendo news Twitter feed called NintendHOME, the company is apparently going to launch a YouTube app on the platform sometime next week.

That’s a huge step int he right direction to making the Nintendo Switch more mobile friendly beyond just being a portable game unit. The real thing that seems to be missing from the Switch is a proper web browsing app. Which if the company is working with YouTube, it’s logically only a few steps away from working with Google to possible put Chrome on the console. But that’s a subject for another day. No word yet as to whether or not the app will only be a European test thing or if there’s a secret global launch on the way for everyone.
