Youtube has annouced their new website/app, Youtube Gaming. It will host more than 25 000 channels, each devoted to a different game. On these channels, you will find videos and live streams of a certain game. On top of those, there will also be channels dedicated to game publishers and Youtube creators.
The livestreams will feature a frame rate of 60fps, DVR and will automatically convert the stream into a Youtube video. You also won’t have to schedule a live event ahead of time.
You can check out their website for more information. The content is set to release this summer.
Personnally, I don’t know if I’ll be watching my favorite Youtubers on this platform, unless they switch to it, but Twitch showed us with this tweet that it isn’t scared:
With the information we have, do you think Youtube Gaming will be a real competition to Twitch?
