YouTube Gaming, Google’s anti-Twitch, officially launches on August 26


In June, Google announced a new YouTube spinoff to compete with Amazon’s Twitch. The company has confirmed that YouTube Gaming will officially launch 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.

YouTube Gaming will be offered wherever YouTube is available. The websiteAndroid and iOS apps are scheduled to go live at 10am PT, 1pm ET and 6pm BT.
