YouTube Launches Live-Streaming Video Game Service

Technology News – It’s official: YouTube Gaming, a website and app for live-streaming video games, launched to the public Wednesday after months of beta testing.

Users can find fellow gamers live-streaming their sessions as well as videos and other content related to their favorite titles. Gamers can also upload their own gameplay live-streams to the service.

YouTube owner Google first announced YouTube Gaming in June, when the company said the service is “built to be all about your favorite games and gamers, with more videos than anywhere else.”

Google is aiming largely at the live-streaming video game service Twitch, which the company reportedly tried and failed to buy last year. Amazon instead snapped up Twitch for $970 million in August 2014.

In addition to the website, a YouTube Gaming app is also available for Android and iOS devices.
