Google announced the launch in Latin America of YouTube Gaming, the content platform that combines “the essence of video games and streaming.” The application is available in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru.

The platform allows users to find content of more than 25,000 games, receive recommendations and access to best videos and live streams, among other options. It is available for PCs or through apps for iOS and Android.

“Gaming content is among the most popular ones on YouTube”, said Alessandro Sassaroli, Head of YouTube Gaming in Latin America.  This application “brings you closer than ever before to other players and the world of gaming”, the executive added.

To celebrate the launch, the company will perform, for the first time, a 24-hour stream-a-thon with the most popular gamers in Spain and Latin America.
