The Xbox One is in a unique position in Microsoft's ecosystem, in that it actually has an actual, official YouTube app. It's not very good, but it's there nonetheless. And now we're learning it'll most likely be upstaged this year by third-party client, MyTube.
The developer is currently working on MyTube 3.0 which can be tried in open beta. This embrace of the Universal Windows Platform and the impending opening of the doors to apps on the console means one of our favorite YouTube apps will be on our TV, too.
There's a message delivered in the existing app to all current users detailing the news and a few hints on what's going to be cut out. Some features aren't necessary on the big screen, like casting, but it does suggest you'll still be able to download videos for offline use as well as use it to play background audio when that feature is finally unlocked.
Build it, and they will come. Hopefully the start of a bright future for our favorite apps on the Xbox One.
