Following on from the YouTube App for the PS Vita, the PS3 is also getting the YouTube App later today in North America. The app will be free to download from the PlayStation Store, and will feature a completely new experience for viewing YouTube. The app has been optimised for the big screen and the PS3.
Here’s what you’ll find in the app:
- Search: Finding the videos you want is easier than ever, with search suggestions and instant video results while you type.
- Your subscribed channels: Sign in to find the latest videos from your YouTube subscriptions, which now also includes official music videos.
- Your phone as a remote: With a quick pairing process, you can control YouTube on PS3 with a smartphone. Find a video on your phone and with a button it’ll play on the big screen. While the video is playing you can control it from the phone, or keep browsing YouTube for the next one.
After the PlayStation Store update today, you’ll find the new app in the PlayStation Store under My Channels.
