Now that PS4 update 1.61 has gone live this week, are you happy with the update or are you disappointed that Sony didn’t introduce more new features to the system? One of the most anticipated features has still not arrived though we see, with Sony keeping fans waiting for the PS4 YouTube app.
As many gamers are finding out, the PS4 1.61 update does not include a native YouTube app. We’re not sure as to why it is taking so long, but obviously we are hoping that Sony are planning to finally release it with the next PS4 1.62 update.
It’s perhaps more frustrating when you take into consideration that the Xbox One launched with a fully functional YouTube app, so what’s the delay for Sony? The PS3 YouTube app works fine, so is it just not a case of simply transferring the relevant materials over to the new setup?
Play station can't move the YouTube app from the ps3 to ps4?

We can only assume that YouTube are partnering with Sony to make the PS4 YouTube app the best experience it possibly can be on console, and that it could even offer additional functionality not included on the Xbox One version.
Meanwhile, the wait for the app appears to be playing on the minds of consumers who are starting to get tired of waiting:
Still can't believe YouTube ain't got an app on PS4 yet #HurryUp ðŸ˜’âŒšï¸
