YouTube Gaming, Google’s anti-Twitch, officially launches on August 26
YouTube Gaming will feature more than 25,000 pages for various game titles, each with livestreams, promotional videos, gameplay footages and more. The site and mobile app specifically caters to gaming enthusiasts; for example, searching for “Call” won’t autocomplete with “Call Me Maybe,” but “Call of Duty” instead.
Viewers can also chat with other members during livestreams. Creators can monitor comments from the app, and each stream has a custom URL for easy sharing. YouTube Gaming will stream at 60fps.
