The race is onn! YouTube Gaming is trying itâs level best to keep up with its fierce competitor, Twitch.
YouTube gaming is slowly becoming a major platform for gamers to stream content. In the past month we have seen some of the biggest names in the streaming world move away from Twitch to join YouTube Gaming.
TimTheTatman and Dr Lupo are few amongst the many former Twitch streamers who have joined YouTube Gaming in exclusive deals.
YouTube Gaming introduced the highly-demanded âsubscriber onlyâ mode for streams in May 2021. And guess what? Thereâs much more to come.
âYouTubeâs Sort Of Primeâ
The eSports organization 100 Thievesâ co-owner Valkyrae has now revealed that YouTube Gaming is working on its own kind of Twitch Prime experience for users.
Rachell âValkyraeâ Hofstetter is one of the biggest names in the streaming community and if she has revealed something about YouTube Gamingâs upcoming features, it certainly means we can expect them.
âWe donât have a Prime yet,â she said, â[but] YouTube is working on gifted members and some sort of Prime thatâs not a Prime.â
What Will It Include?
While Twitch Prime, now called Prime Gaming offers a lot of benefits and perks to members, it remains to be seen what YouTubeâs version of Prime would include for the members.
YouTubeâs Global Head of Gaming Ryan âFwizâ Wyatt has already said that a lot of highly-requested features will be coming soon.
