YouTube On Wii U Receives A Visual Refresh

I assumed it was eventually coming and now it’s here, a brand new look for the Wii U YouTube application. The new YouTube app is the same one that can be found on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. However, the Wii U version is slightly different as it obviously uses the second screen. Be sure to check out the update which should be live on your console and give YouTube a spin.
