Google is about to go up against Amazon as it launches Twitch competitor, YouTube Gaming tomorrow.
Accessible through http://gaming.youtube.com, visitors will be able to check out gaming content in what YouTube is calling the “go-to destination for anything and everything gaming.”
One cool feature that YouTube Gaming is bringing is a “DVR Mode” which buffers the last four hours of a stream and allows viewers to rewind. Twitch requires the stream to conclude and then catch up on the past broadcast to check out anything you might have missed.
YouTube Gaming will be available everywhere YouTube is available, an Android App in the US and UK with “other countries coming soon. An iOS App will also be available at the launch in English only. Google has grievances with Windows Phone so don’t expect an official app there as Google does not support official apps on the phone OS including Waze, GMail and YouTube apps.
