Sony Announces YouTube App for PS3
Sony announced today that a YouTube app was being rolled out for the PlayStation 3. Read on for details.
Sony announced a new YouTube application for the PS3 today, available for free in North America starting today. Here are some of the important parts of the blog posting:
You might have watched YouTube on PS3 before, but get ready for a whole new world of video and features. We have a completely new experience, designed for the big screen and optimized for the PS3. Here’s what you’ll find:
- 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.
I use the YouTube app on the PS Vita, and can see using this on the TV’s larger screen. If you are in North America and have a PS3, look for this app in the PlayStation Store under My Channels.
