Here’s a little bit of an about-face: YouTube now says it has a Vision Pro app on its roadmap. I mean this literally, as YouTube spokesperson Jessica Gibby just emailed me the following statement: “We’re excited to see Vision Pro launch and we’re supporting it by ensuring YouTube users have a great experience in Safari. We do not have any specific plans to share at this time, but can confirm that a Vision Pro app is on our roadmap.”
Fantastic. Glad to see they’re not going to hold out. Hopefully it doesn’t take too long. The in-browser experience isn’t terrible, but a native app with right-sized controls would be nice, as would the ability to download video for offline viewing.
