YouTube app for Xbox One available just in time for launch

youtube-xbox-oneGoogle decided they wanted to cut it reeaallly close to the Xbox One’s launch this Friday before delivering a YouTube app, but it looks like they just made it.

The Xbox One app, which looks pretty much identical to the Xbox 360 app, includes voice and gesture control as one may expect.

Love YouTube? Love Xbox? You can now watch your favorite videos and channels with the YouTube app for Xbox One. Check out videos in 1080p glory (Slip and Slide LAUNCH RAMP anyone?), catch the latest videos from your subscriptions like Polaris, or see trending videos from categories like Music and Sports.

The YouTube app for Xbox One also makes it easier to find and watch whatever you want:

  • Voice – Control the app just by saying “YouTube” wherever you are in the app. Commands like play, pause, and fast forward will instantly pop up on screen.
  • Gesture – Grab the screen to scroll through videos, and use your hand to pick which one you want to watch.
