Google provides YouTube with a new page for games and stops with its standalone YouTube Gaming app. In March 2019 the app must be completely phased out. YouTube released the Gaming app in 2015, but many functions are now also in the regular app.

The disappearance of the YouTube Gaming app is mentioned by Google in an announcement of the new gaming page on the video platform. You can find it on youtube.com/gaming and this page should replace the stand-alone app. Google says to stop the app because more people can be reached via the regular version of YouTube.

YouTube came in 2015 with its Gaming app and since 2016 the app was also available in the Benelux. The app received a dark mode and showed selections of channels with livestreams of games. According to the Google Play Store, the Games app is installed on more than five million devices. How many installations the iOS app has is not known. The regular YouTube app for Android has been installed more than a billion times.
