Google announced Youtube Gaming, a new app and website to keep users connected to the games, players, and culture that matter to them, with videos, live streams, and the biggest community of gamers on the web.
Google finally realizes that there are these gamers who are sharing videos and there are lots of them. Twitch has been so far the main player in that field. Now ahead of the video game show E3 2015 Google announces Youtube Gaming. Youtube Gaming is a new app and website to keep users connected to the games, players, and culture that matter to them, with videos, live streams, and the biggest community of gamers on the web.

From "Asteroids" to "Zelda," more than 25,000 games will each have their own page, a single place for all the best videos and live streams about that title. You’ll also find channels from a wide array of game publishers and YouTube creators.
Gamers can add a game to their collection for quick access whenever they want to check up on the latest videos. Subscribe to a channel, and users get a notification as soon as they start a live stream. Uncover new favorites with recommendations based on the games and channels you love. And when users want something specific, they can search with confidence, knowing that typing “call” will show you “Call of Duty” and not “Call Me Maybe.”
Live streams bring the gaming community closer together, so Youtube has put them front-and-center on the YouTube Gaming homepage. And in the coming weeks, Youtube will launch an improved live experience that makes it simpler to broadcast your gameplay to YouTube.
On top of existing features like high frame rate streaming at 60fps, DVR, and automatically converting your stream into a YouTube video, Google is redesigning their system so that there is no need to schedule a live event ahead of time.
