YouTube Playables is the latest proposal from Google’s streaming video platform, The basis of the project is the integration of video games within YouTube. The idea is not innovative, Netflix already does it and, currently, playing any type of title is really easy thanks to the enormous number of services offered on the market.
What makes YouTube Playables special? The reality is that nothing, but Google seems not to want to abandon the video game sector after the failure of Stadia. This time the approach is different, it is not based on the creation of a new platform and will use YouTube as the support for this new journey in an increasingly competitive sector.

The captures that have been obtained show that games within YouTube will have their own spacethus differentiating content such as videos or shorts from video games that will now be offered on YouTube as part of Google’s new foray into this sector.
At the level of available games, there is bad news for all those people who were waiting for console titles on YouTube. YouTube Playables games are for mobile devicesthe titles available and that can be seen thanks to the screenshots are the following:
