YouTube Taking on Twitch with YouTube Gaming
13 June, 2015
News

This summer, YouTube is taking a step into the world of video game broadcasting by launching its own gaming website and application, YouTube Gaming. It is designed to keep you connected to all the games and players involved in the gaming culture with livestreams and videos. Twitch had some words for their newest competitor.

Ryan Wyatt, YouTube’s global head of gaming partnerships, spoke of the importance of live streaming video games. He said that YouTube Gaming has been built for gamers and by gamers with the end result being that gaming in YouTube will have a specific home.

YouTube Gaming is built to be all about your favorite games and gamers, with more videos than anywhere else. From ‘Asteroids’ to ‘Zelda. More than 25,000 games will each have their own page, a single place for all the best videos and live streams about that title. You’ll also find channels from a wide array of game publishers and YouTube creators.

The new app and website will let users subscribe to channels and receive instant notifications whenever a livestream of their favorite streamers start. The search engine will also be optimized just for video games. So unlike with YouTube, in YouTube Gaming you can type the word ‘call’ into the search bar and have the various Call of Duty titles pop up without worry of seeing Carly Rae Jepsen’s song – “Call Me Maybe”.  Additionally, streamers will be able to enable DVR so that viewers can rewind live broadcasts. Along with this, the option to stream in a low latency will allow the streamer to interact with fans during gaming. On top of that, scheduling a live event ahead of time is no longer necessary. This feature alone will change streaming for YouTube gamers.
