YouTube today announced YouTube Gaming, a brand new website and app to directly compete with Twitch, consolidating all the gaming videos and streams in one place under one banner. It will launch this summer in UK and US, and will later be rolled out for the rest of the world.
Since this is a dedicated gaming focused site, recommendations and search algorithms will be tailored for gamers.
Besides which there are niceties like 60FPS live streams and sorting streams according to games.
YouTube is also set to set up a separate link for all the streams it will host.
