YouTube to Kill Gaming App, Moves Content to New Hub

It also shows you videos from subscribed gaming channels, and allows you to set reminders for upcoming livestreams on your Google Calendar.

He explains that outside of Ninja, the biggest gaming content creators, for example Markiplier and PewDiePie are on YouTube.

In an effort to help those who are new to content creation, YouTube is also creating a dedicated On the Rise section. "After all, YouTube is where more than 200 million gamers come to engage with your favorite games and creators every day, watching over 50 billion hours of gaming content in the last 12 months alone". With this rolling out now, you'll be met with the top streams currently taking place, a selection of games to watch, trending videos, plus more. "With tens of thousands of different game pages, you'll be able to find content no matter how big or small the game is", wrote Chen. If I were to be really picky when it comes to the design, I'd say it's less Twitch-lite and more YouTube, but it's otherwise not that noticeable of a difference.

"The problem is, if you didn't have the app, or you weren't using the gaming hub to kind of like discover this content, creators weren't as discoverable".

YouTube Gaming launched in 2015 as Google's answer to Twitch, which had been bought out by Amazon in 2014.

All the features of YouTube Gaming will now be incorporated into regular YouTube, including livestreams, Super Chat and channel memberships. It's bringing those features over to the main site along with the rest of Gaming. As it was, YouTube Gaming was just another rather useless attempt to grab Twitch's glory. You can visit the site now to see what it looks like.

The YouTube Gaming standalone app will be discontinued in March next year.

YouTube also promises to highlight up-and-coming game streamers and content creators on a weekly basis, starting this week in the U.S. and then rolling out to other countries in the coming months.
