Google will shutdown the YouTube Gaming application on May 30
The YouTube Gaming application will shutdown on May 30, however clients will almost certainly discover their gaming videos on a dedicated channel on the main YouTube application.
Google says the shutdown shouldn’t influence viewers much, prescribing Gaming application client to merge subscriptions crosswise over YouTube.
“Start enjoying your favorite Gaming content on the Gaming homepage in the main YouTube app,” clarifies Google on its support page. This should be possible in YouTube Gaming application settings.
Notwithstanding, it’s unrealistic to exchange the games saved in application, however Google says it is investigating better approaches to organise clients’ game interests on YouTube.
“We want to continue to build a stronger home for the gaming community that thrives on YouTube, not just the YouTube Gaming app. After May 2019, we’ll retire the YouTube Gaming app and focus our gaming efforts across YouTube,” clarifies Google.
Google presented YouTube Gaming in 2015, as a dedicated streaming service for gamers to challenge rival Amazon’s Twitch service.
In any case, it sunsetted the application in September 2018, on grounds that the service lead to brand confusion and was poorly adopted.
