YouTube Gaming, the specialised app and site dedicated to video game streaming and more, is being shut down by Google.
All the features of YouTube Gaming will now be incorporated into regular YouTube, including livestreams, Super Chat and channel memberships.
“We’re always working to make the gaming experience on YouTube better,” said the company in a statement provided to VG247. “Over the past few years we’ve focused on building tools and experiences that the gaming community has been asking for.
“That’s why in 2015, we launched YouTube Gaming, a standalone app for gamers where we tested new features like Game Pages for better discoverability, Super Chat and Channel Memberships to help fans show support for their favorite creators, Dark Theme and even a new live streaming platform based on the gaming community’s feedback.
“The response to these features has been so positive that we brought them over from the YouTube Gaming app to the main YouTube experience.”
