YouTube claims that users spend billions of hours watching gaming videos every month. The most followed person in YouTube is Felix Kjellberg. He is also known as PewDiePie. By the way, he is a gamer.

A head of YouTube Gaming Ryan Wyatt said to BBC:

We wanted to create a one-stop shop for all gaming content.
At the moment there is a fragmented experience. People go to different places for live content, and YouTube for video on demand

According to him, this new YouTube gaming platform is for “amazing gamers that don’t stream live yet.” But from now on, they have that opportunity.

Twitch, owned by Amazon, is a platform for players who want to broadcast live. Millions of people go there every day to watch how other people play games.
