YouTube Gaming will be Google's portal for gaming video content, with the service automatically collecting all gaming-related videos. This will include livestreams on individual pages for more than 25,000 different games. More so, it will provide gamers with personalized recommendations based on the pages and channels that they follow.

Google is also making it much easier for people to livestream their games to YouTube, offering up a new page (which is currently sitting in beta form), providing a better way to start streaming your games from a personal URL. Frank Petterson, Engineering Manager for YouTube Gaming said: "Together, we all make gaming better. Our peers make us better gamers, and games are made better by the communities that surround them".
