Sony has launched a new YouTube app for PS3 in Australia, New Zealand and multiple European countries.
Located in My Channels under TV & Video Services on the home screen, the new app has been specifically "designed for the big screen and PS3 controls", according to YouTube marketing manager Peter Sherman.
"The new app brings you more content, like your subscribed channels, and more ways to find videos, with better search tools, more ways to watch YouTube by pairing your smartphone, and more language options," he said on the PS Blog.
- 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, whether it be official music videos or the PlayStation channel.
- 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 simple button press 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.
- Language Support: Set your language on your PS3 and use the new YouTube app in your language. The following languages are supported: English, Swedish, Italian, German, Spanish, French, Dutch and Russian.
The new app is available now in Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Russia and the United Kingdom.
