Juno: An unofficial third-party YouTube app for Apple Vision Pro
Google has announced that it has no plans to release a YouTube app for Apple's new Vision Pro headset. However, another developer, Christian Selig of the now-defunct Reddit app Apollo, took on the challenge of creating such an app.
YouTube for Apple Vision Pro
Unofficial third-party Juno app
Although Juno is an unofficial third-party app, it supports most features YouTube. With it, you can watch videos, scroll through and skip videos using gestures, and also see the aspect ratio of the video. The YouTube catalog is also available in Juno (but comments on videos will not be visible). The app also supports advertising on YouTube to avoid Google's irritation. It's important to note that a YouTube Premium subscription is required to use all features.
VisionOS UI via YouTube API
Juno provides VisionOS UI via YouTube API for embedding to external pages. When you browse YouTube in the Juno app, a modified version of the YouTube site opens.
Juno availability and pricing
Juno app available now on Apple App Store and costs $4.99.
