YouTube Gaming Officially Launches Today

August 26, 2015 by

Today YouTube launched YouTube Gaming.

Today YouTube launched YouTube Gaming, their new app (available on Google Play and the App Store) and desktop destination to keep you connected to the games, players, and culture that matter to you, with videos, live streams, and the biggest community of gamers on the web—all in one place. Check out the launch video above for an idea of what to expect.

YouTube has also improved live stream technology with 60fps streaming, HTML5 playback, and DVR functionality, which allows fans to easily pause, rewind and speed up if they’ve missed any action. Check out the beta version, starting today, at youtube.com/stream.

Let us know in the comments if you’d tried the service, we’re curious how everyone likes it so far.
