YouTube has this week announced the impending launch of a new gaming service that will launch during the summer months called YouTube Gaming, with its rollout starting in the US and UK.
In the coming months YouTube will launch a new app and website to keep you connected to the games, players, and culture that matter to you, with videos, live streams. That will compete with the likes of Twitch.
YouTube explains :
“YouTube Gaming is built to be all about your favorite games and gamers, with more videos than anywhere else. From “Asteroids” to “Zelda,” more than 25,000 games will each have their own page, a single place for all the best videos and live streams about that title. You’ll also find channels from a wide array of game publishers and YouTube creators.
Keeping up with these games and channels is now super easy, too. Add a game to your collection for quick access whenever you want to check up on the latest videos. Subscribe to a channel, and you’ll get a notification as soon as they start a live stream. Uncover new favorites with recommendations based on the games and channels you love. And when you want something specific, you can search with confidence, knowing that typing “call” will show you “Call of Duty” and not “Call Me Maybe.” “
