Let’s play

It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.

As promised, and after some excellent road-testing by thousands of dedicated gaming fans (thanks, folks!), YouTube Gaming is now available. Blending gaming videos and live streams, YouTube Gaming brings you closer to the games, gamers, and culture that matter to you.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • YouTube Gaming is your go-to destination for anything and everything gaming because it automatically pulls in all gaming-related videos and live streams from YouTube.
  • Viewers get personalized gaming recommendations based on the games and channels they collect. With over 25,000 game pages and even more gaming channels, it’s never been easier to connect with your gaming community.
  • We’ve also made it easier to create a live stream — check out the beta version of our new way to go live at today.
YouTube Gaming videos, live streaming, recommendations on laptop, tv, and phones

Find the English-language website ( in any country where YouTube is available, or download the phone and tablet app from Google Play and the App Store, rolling out over the next few hours in the U.S. and U.K. Other countries will be coming soon.

Together, we all make gaming better. Our peers make us better gamers, and games are made better by the communities that surround them. Thanks for your feedback as we brought you YouTube Gaming, and keep it coming. This is just the beginning.
