Nintendo 3DS launched their YouTube App yesterday for free as part of their recent updates to the handheld.
The App may be uploaded from the 3DS eShop in both North America and Europe.
According to PCMag, the dual screen of the 3DS allows for video play on one screen while browsing and navigating with the other for a dual screen experience that even the PC version of YouTube does not offer. However, for some reason the 3DS does not offer 3D playback, and it is unclear if it will be added eventually.
The App came to the Wii U as well, and also features the dual screen with the video able to be played on the GamePad or TV screen, freeing up the other for searching.
YouTube joins Hulu Plus on both consoles as well.
Wii U's Miiverse also had a new update go live last week in preparation for its arrival to the 3DS handheld console.
"This update is designed to prepare for the launch of Miiverse on Nintendo 3DS. Besides the existing communities for Wii U software, many new communities will be created for Nintendo 3DS software and even more users will join Miiverse. With this in mind, we have made the following changes to both the Wii U and web versions of Miiverse," the announcement from NintendoMarty read on Miiverse.
In the posting, some of the new features are spoken about including new display options for the community list using filters, changes to the profile page, and a change to the default display setting for communities within the Miiverse.
"This was already announced in the latest Nintendo Direct, but I wanted to remind you that Miiverse is coming to Nintendo 3DS in December. Please note that a Nintendo Network ID is required to use Miiverse on Nintendo 3DS. If you already have a Nintendo Network ID on Wii U, you can continue using the same ID on your Nintendo 3DS. For more details, please visit the official Nintendo website," the final posting read.
One other update that will be heading to both consoles is the integration of funds that can be shared through their online stores.
