A while after it was teased, YouTube’s dedicated gaming channel has gone live.

It’s a mix of videos and live streams which YouTube says “brings¬†you closer to the games, gamers, and culture that matter to you” –¬†whatever that means.

We can see this going awkwardly wrong occasionally because the channel automatically pulls in all gaming-related videos and live streams from YouTube. Hmm…

Viewers get personalised recommendations based on the games and channels they watch.

The site claims also to have made it easier to create a live stream with a beta version of the new way to go live at

The English version of the new channel is online at¬†¬†and there are apps¬†on Google Play and the Apple AppStore in the US and UK (“more soon”, they promise)
