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.
Better late than never.
