A few months ago, Google unveiled YouTube Gaming, a Twitch gaming service. The idea behind Gaming gathers in one app all YouTube videos and channels related to games, are official, of gameplay, of review, of tips, finally, everything. Yesterday, the YouTube Gaming APK (Creator Preview) appeared, check out the app.
When Google announced Gaming, it was scheduled for the northern hemisphere summer (our winter), which ends September 21, so we still have a month and a half. However, the version that appeared in APKMirror is quite complete, with animations, no bugs apparent and quite similar to the official YouTube app.
The home screen resembles that of YouTube: a search bar, the Cast cone, and a profile photo at the top, a banner With recommendations below, three tabs: Games, Feed, and Channels complete the screen. The Games tab displays a list of games that eto trending now, and allows the user to "favorite" those he wants to follow; Feed shows live events and channel updates followed; Finally, Channels shows a list of channels recommended by the app. To follow / favorite s touch the star just like in Gmail.
Channels are customized by color, which replaces YouTube's classic red. The big difference here is the tabs. To demonstrate, the PewDiePie channel has 11 tabs, Sky Does Minecraft, 9 tabs; There are only two that are ubiquitous: About and Uploads, the others are created by each channel owner. Another big difference on the video screen: here there are also three tabs: Details, Suggestions and Comments, the names are self explanatory.
The app already has over 25,000 videos, offers live chatting, video recommendations based on your favorite games,
The version that appeared at 0.6, so maybe we have some changes up to 1.0. The APK is 9.27MB, occupies about 28MB on the smartphone and requires Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher to run. The download link is in the source.
What did you think about the look of YouTube Gaming? Better or worse than the look of the official app?
