YouTube has officially announced the launch of YouTube Gaming in India. The move comes months after YouTube Gaming was launched in the U.S. and U.K.in August last year.
Announced first in June, YouTube Gaming will offer users personalized gaming recommendations based on the games and channels they collect. It will have more than 25,000 games with own page for each, so that it will be easy to watch videos and live streams about that title. The app features a “Games” tab and a “Channels” tab. Trending games and popular games are seen while you browse by game. YouTube Gaming also has an inline chat feature along with the ability to video archive games. Viewers can get personalized recommendations of what to watch based on their subscriptions and the games they collect.
You can browse dedicated pages for every game, as well as publisher and gamer channels and explore categories from reviews to let’s plays, machinima, eSports, and more. The app even offers live stream notifications to your device. YouTube recently got 60fps live streaming, especially for those who are streaming games. In case of the Android app, users can broadcast your gameplay to YouTube, record and live stream mobile gameplay on-the-go using Mobile Capture in YouTube Gaming.
