Youtube Gaming launches tomorrow
We first learned of YouTube Gaming back in June, and we even managed to go hands-on with the gaming-centric video service at E3 2015 later that same month. Now we have learned that YouTube Gaming will finally launch to the public tomorrow, August 26th.
Not only will the full web experience be available, but the Android and iOS apps are expected to go live this week as well. At debut, YouTube Gaming contains over 25,000 dedicated game pages and is designed to not only support static videos but also the same kind of great livestream content that has made Twitch so popular.
It is still unclear how well the gaming world will receive Google’s big Twitch competitor, but Google does promise cohesive YouTube integration for uploading videos from YT Gaming to Youtube. You can also expect all the features offered by ‘regular’ YouTube, such as an advanced search system that automatically pulls relevant topics and while it works the same as YouTube, it knows better than to pull non-gaming results. Google will even curate what each person sees in their feeds based on the games and channels they watch and follow.
