[Discussion] Vision Pro's App Dilemma: Netflix and YouTube Opt for Web Over Dedicated Apps

Recommended Posts

Netflix and YouTube Opt Out of Dedicated Vision Pro Apps

In a significant development for the upcoming Apple Vision Pro headset, streaming giants Netflix and YouTube have decided against releasing dedicated apps. Netflix has confirmed that it will not be creating a specific app for the Vision Pro, nor will it adapt its existing iPad app for the new platform. Instead, Netflix users will need to rely on the web browser version on the Vision Pro, which lacks certain features like offline downloads. Similarly, YouTube has also announced that it will not launch a dedicated app for the Vision Pro, directing users to the Safari web browser for content viewing. This decision from two major content providers could impact the user experience on the Vision Pro, particularly for those seeking an immersive viewing experience.

Disney+ Takes a Different Approach

In contrast to Netflix and YouTube, Disney+ seems to be embracing the potential of the Vision Pro. Disney+ plans to enhance the user experience with immersive backdrops inspired by popular franchises such as Marvel's Avengers, Pixarโ€™s "Monsters Inc.," and "Star Wars." This move by Disney+ could offer a more engaging and interactive viewing environment compared to the standard web browser experience provided by Netflix and YouTube. The decision by Disney+ to invest in a tailored experience for Vision Pro users highlights the varying approaches of streaming services to new mixed reality platforms.

The Bigger Picture: Streaming Services and Mixed Reality

The reluctance of Netflix and YouTube to develop dedicated apps for the Vision Pro raises questions about their commitment to mixed reality headsets. Netflix's existing app for the Meta Quest has faced criticism for poor resolution and bugs, suggesting a lack of investment in the mixed reality space. YouTube's decision to forego a Vision Pro app, despite having an app on the Meta Quest, further indicates a cautious approach towards new mixed reality hardware. As mixed reality technology continues to evolve, the responses of major streaming services will play a crucial role in shaping the future of entertainment consumption in these new digital spaces.
