YouTube is reportedly shutting down its Gaming app

News Technology

YouTube Gaming app is shutting down on May 30th. YouTube announced the impending shutdown last year, saying that the spin-off had caused confusion among gaming fans. It integrated the service into its main app instead, launching a games-focused hub that has already mostly replaced the old YouTube Gaming.

In a help page, YouTube directs any remaining YouTube Gaming fans to this newer hub. It’s also merged YouTube and YouTube Gaming subscriptions, although people will apparently lose the list of games they’ve saved.

“We launched YouTube Gaming as a standalone app for gamers where we tested out new features based on the gaming community’s feedback,” the page explains.

“We want to continue to build a stronger home for the gaming community that thrives on YouTube.”

YouTube Gaming was launched in 2015.
