YouTube Says Apple Vision Pro App is 'On the Roadmap'

Following the launch of Apple's Vision Pro headset, YouTube now says an app for the device is 'on the roadmap'.

YouTube, Spotify, and Netflix all declined to create visionOS apps or allow their iPad apps to run on Vision Pro before launch. However, it appears YouTube has changed its mind. Spokesperson Jessica Gibby emailed the following statement to The Verge...

"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."

The company did not specify a timeframe for when the app could arrive, nor did it indicate if its library of 360 and VR video would work on Vision Pro. When Apple was asked about YouTube's 360 and 3D video, spokesperson Jackie Roy indicated the quality of that content was inadequate.

"much of this content was created for devices that do not deliver a high-quality spatial experience. In some cases, this content could also cause motion discomfort. We've focused our efforts on delivering the best spatial media experience possible including spatial photos and videos, Apple Immersive Video, and 3D movies available on Apple TV."

Apple's Vision Pro was just released on February 2nd; however, there are already over 600 native apps for the device. You can check out a teardown of the headset here and please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for more Vision Pro updates.
