Watch YouTube videos without closing PS Vita games

Sony PS Vita users can now watch YouTube videos without having to close games, thanks to the PS Vita YouTube app getting its new background running update.

If you take a look at the embed tweet we have added via PlayStation they mention the update is coming soon that allows users to watch videos without having to close background apps, if you read the comments a few have said the update is now live.

We have not got a Sony PS Vita to see if the update is live but we have asked around and it seems to be correct, it is live and running now. This means Sony PS Vita games can still run in the background whilst you watch a YouTube video.

YouTube app with background running capabilities means gamers will not have to suspend a game to watch videos, this means users can use it without having the console shutting down game applications.

This is a great idea because millions of gamers get stuck in a game and head on over to YouTube for guides, cheats and walkthroughs and now you can toggle between the game and YouTube videos.

Please do let OSM know if you have the PS Vita YouTube app update?
