YouTube Gaming was basically a response by Google for Twitch. It looks and works essentially like YouTube, the theme and color scheme is a little darker. The focus of YouTube Gaming is to offer you on-demand and live videos of video games. You’ll be able to explore a wide breadth of gaming related videos which range from walkthroughs all the way up till soundtrack compilations.
Will It Be Easy To Discover Things You Like?
The first page you land on in this application consists of Trending sections, alongside Recommended Videos, all of which bring to you those playlists and videos which are not live at the moment but were uploaded previously. These videos could be dated anywhere between a few hours ago to some that are several weeks old. Either way, this section is a great way of discovering all the content that you may have missed.
If you want to get into all the latest stuff as it is occurring all over the world, then you will simply have to click ‘Live’. In this section, you will be able to see all the trending live feeds that are happening at that very moment. It would also be quite hard to miss which videos are live because they will have a red ‘Live’ tag on them in the bottom right corner.
To follow the tradition of YouTube, there is also a section where you can explore videos by channel or game. Here, you will be able to pull out the most popular videos in the title. If all of this wasn’t enough, you will also have a search bar to help you pull out a video which is very specific to your needs.
If you’ve used YouTube before (who hasn’t?) then you will be able to easily decipher the layout of YouTube Gaming. The application is fairly easy to navigate in and you will catch on instantly.
How’s The Streaming Experience?
Streaming on this app is fairly simple, and can also be done directly from PlayStation 4 console. If you’re on the go (or just felt like it), then you can easily access the streaming services from your Android Smartphone – which is bad news for all iOS users. Also there is still no rumor about adding straight streaming from Xbox One consoles.
