In the past, watching YouTube videos on a PlayStation 3 was possible, but not the most enjoyable experience. Sony hopes to change that by finally delivering a native video-streaming app for its console. The PS3 app is designed from the ground up to give the best possible experience when viewed on a big screen. Along with a new aesthetic, Sony says users can expect:
- 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.
