YouTube has walked back its stance on not having a native support on the Apple Vision Pro, saying now that a dedicated app is "on the roadmap."
In January, YouTube announced it would not be building any specialized apps for the Apple Vision Pro, Apple's new spatial computing headset. It also announced that it would not allow its iPad apps to run on the hardware.
However, it didn't take very long for the company to walk back that statement.
"We're excited to see Vision Pro launch and we're supporting it by ensuring YouTube users have a great experience in Safari." YouTube spokesperson Jessica Gibby told The Verge in a statement.
"We do not have any specific plans to share at this time, but can confirm that a Vision Pro app is on our roadmap," Gibby added.
There's no dedicated timeframe for the release of such an app. Currently, YouTube recommends that Apple Vision Pro users visit YouTube via Safari for the time being.
As The Verge points out, neither Apple nor YouTube have figured out how to support current 360 and VR videos active on YouTube. Allegedly, the content may never work on the Apple Vision Pro, as Apple spokesperson Jackie Roy has stated that the content isn't high-quality, and could cause motion discomfort.
