YouTube Gaming launches today on the web and with apps for iOS and Android. The Google owned company is aiming to take a bite out market leader Twitch, owned by Amazon, by offering a portal for all gaming related content, personalized recommendations, and game streaming.
When browsing YouTube Gaming you’ll be able to subscribe to specific channels and find content for specific games. Based on your likes and subscriptions other games will be recommended.
“Together, we all make gaming better,” said Frank Petterson, engineering manager for YouTube Gaming. “Our peers make us better gamers, and games are made better by the communities that surround them.”
The website launches today, 26th August, with the iOS and Android apps rolling out tomorrow in the U.K. and United States, other countries will be added “soon”.
