If you’re like us, you’ve probably been making the most of these long winter nights scoring ridiculous goals, fighting aliens, and all other kinds of heroic pursuits on your games consoles. While you’re there, you should have a look at the YouTube app - you’re sure to have a happy surprise. As of today, we have radically improved the YouTube experience on PlayStation 3 in 19 countries, hot on the heels of similar improvements on the other major consoles.
We have a completely new experience, designed for the big screen and console controls. Here’s what you’ll find on your PS3:
- Search: Finding the videos you want is easier than ever, with search suggestions and instant video results while you type.
- Channels you love: Sign in to find the latest videos from your YouTube subscriptions, which now also includes HD and official music videos.
- Your phone as a remote: With a quick pairing process, you can control YouTube with your smartphone. Find a video on your phone and—with a click of a button—it’ll play on the big screen. While the video is playing on your TV you can control it from the phone, or keep browsing YouTube for the next one.
- Language support: Set your language on your PS3 and use the new YouTube app in your language. The following languages are supported: English, Swedish, Italian, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian.
This release brings the new app to PlayStation 3 in the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Russia and the United Kingdom.
