Big news for gamers! Youtube is launching dedicated app for Gaming named Youtube Gaming. According to Youtube’s blogpost, Youtube Gaming is built for games and gamers which every game has its own dedicated page as well as live streaming functionality. This is definitely a direct take on Twitch.tv.
Live streams bring the gaming community closer together, so we’ve put them front-and-center on the YouTube Gaming homepage. And in the coming weeks, we’ll launch an improved live experience that makes it simpler to broadcast your gameplay to YouTube. On top of existing features like high frame rate streaming at 60fps, DVR, and automatically converting your stream into a YouTube video, we’re redesigning our system so that you no longer need to schedule a live event ahead of time. We’re also creating single link you can share for all your streams.
