Google has today sought to give its Twitch competitor, YouTube Gaming a shot in the arm by launching a new feature for its Google Play Games Android app that allows gamers to record their in-game action and then upload it to YouTube.
YouTube has taken the opportunity to capture the collective attention of a captive audience during this year's Tokyo Game Show with an announcement relating to mobile gaming. Executives from the Google-owned video streaming service have told those in attendance at the show that Android gamers will soon be able to live stream their gaming sessions directly to YouTube from an array of Android devices.
After months of build up, Google today finally launched its competitor to Twitch, with YouTube Gaming going live on the web today, and its iOS & Android apps also being made available.
Google today announced YouTube Gaming, a service that will go live later this year allowing gamers to watch and stream content both on mobile and the Web. More details on Big G's new service can be found right here.
