Twitch? Who needs it. Today, Google Play Games announced a new feature that will allow you to record and share their gameplay moments with others. No, it’s not for streaming hours of footage, it’s more when you want to share myself beating the level or get the highest score. You can push it on YouTube Gaming, to get those opinions and that income.
Here’s what the team had to say:
Today, we’re launching a new feature to the application Google Play Games, which makes it easy to record and share with others their own best moments of games from your favorite mobile games.
This is simple. Attached to play the game, select any game you want to play, then press the record button. You can capture your gameplay in 720p or 480p, and choose to add a video of yourself and commentary from the front of your device to the camera and microphone. When you have finished recording, you can quickly edit and upload videos to YouTube.
This is a good addition for those of you throwing the game to your TV with a new Chromecast. Video uploads to YouTube to first place, of course, and then you can share it on your social channel selection.
Yeah, so I think of it as Twitch Light . YouTube claims that 144 billion minutes of game videos and livestreams look on the platform, so any way they can think of to get more content out there is great for them. And for gamers.
update for Android-Google Play Games rolling out over the next few days in the US and the UK in the first place.
