Google to shut down YouTube Gaming app on May 30
Today, the Mountain View company announced that it will shut down the YouTube Gaming app on May 30. Since we're so close to the deadline, we doubt that Google will further delay the closure of the app.
Unfortunately, any content that you might have saved or viewed on the YouTube Gaming will be gone after May 30, as Google announced that it's not possible to transfer games between platforms.
According to YouTube, the merger of the two platforms will allow the company “to build a stronger home for the gaming community” on YouTube, not just the YouTube Gaming app. In other words, YouTube is putting all the eggs in one basket to better compete with the likes of Twitch.
