Google takes on Twitch with YouTube Gaming

Originally announced two and a half months ago, YouTube Gaming went live this morning as the search giant’s Twitch competitor slowly but surely comes into full view.

Basically a YouTube built for gamers, the all-new YouTube Gaming website is live in the United States and United Kingdom at gaming.youtube.com with a selection of live-streaming videos showing people playing various games.

Much like Amazon-owned Twitch service which allows people to stream their gameplay videos and others to watch it, YouTube Gaming was designed to host gameplay videos, video how-tos and walkthroughs pertaining to popular games and more.
