YouTube Enters Gaming with “YouTube Playables” for Subscribers

YouTube Enters Gaming with “YouTube Playables” for Subscribers; YouTube is diving into gaming content to better compete with entertainment platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime. The company just introduced a new feature called YouTube Playables – free games that Premium subscribers can play right within the YouTube app.

The Playables game library includes over 35 casual titles across puzzle, action, sports and arcade genres. Games like Angry Birds, PacMan, Frogger, and Tetris are available with more to come in the near future.

YouTube goal is to increase the value proposition of a YouTube Premium membership beyond just ad-free video. This could attract new subscribers and better retain existing ones.

YouTube has been ramping up gaming content recently with live streams, esports, and more. So Playables represents the latest push into interactive entertainment.

For the about 50 million premium members, Playables offers a fun new way to pass time on the app without downloads or purchases. It taps into the explosive growth of mobile gaming with a seamless YouTube twist.

While not as robust as dedicated gaming services, Playables moves YouTube into competitive new territory. With its massive built-in audience and gaming ecosystem taking shape, don’t be surprised if Playables grows into something much bigger down the line. For now, playable is a glimpse of YouTube’s ambitions beyond videos.
