When the PlayStation Store update goes live today, it will include a brand new YouTube app, which will be available for FREE. While PS3 already allowed for viewing YouTube videos, this new experience is optimized and designed for viewing on the big screen.
The YouTube app provides the following functionality:
- 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.
You’ll be able to find the new app in the PlayStation Store under My Channels. North America is getting the app today, while other countries will get it in the coming months.
