YouTube Gaming gets an app

downloadYouTube Gaming has finally shifted to live, directly competing against Amazon’s Twitch. Sure enough the platform has now become completely accessible as well as launching an official application for YouTube Gaming is now available for download.

For those of you not familiar with YouTube Gaming, this is Google’s take on the live game streaming industry. While the focus is primarily on live streaming of gameplay, recorded content will also be available which includes past broadcasts, recorded gameplay, and Video on Demand. In fact all gaming related content  currently on YouTube will also available from within YouTube Gaming.

The idea is to make it as easy  as possible to stream gameplay on YouTube Gaming, so that anyone who wants to do it can easily pick it up and go for it. For content creators, and most YouTube accounts, the button to Go Live should be up in the top right when signed into your account. The layout for the application is pretty much identical to the YouTube Gaming portal in browsers as well. Flipping between the two should be pretty easy once you’ve learned where everything is.

One step Youtube Gaming may have over Twitch is that anyone with access to the streaming dashboard and monetize their stream, allowing the gamer to earn some money from their gaming experience. Twitch requires a certain amount of viewership before you can be partnered with Twitch, once down ads are used to generate revenue. With YouTune Gaming, as long as you can access the streaming dashboard, you can monetize your stream as well as enable Fan Funding cards.

Amazon goes Underground

downloadThe bad news regarding Amazon’s Free App of the Day promotion has been terminated. There will be no more Free Apps of the Day. The good news is that it is being replaced with Amazon Underground, which is a new application full of free apps and games.

The way it works is that even though the apps and games are available for download for free, developers will still get paid. The amount paid is based on the customer usage of their app/games. Amazon will pay developers for every minute your Amazon Underground app is used in exchange for developers waiving their normal download or in-app fees. In a way this is great for developers as every single user now becomes a source of revenue, making the chances of a developer being successful much better.

If you want access as a consumer to the apps and games on Amazon’s Underground, you will have to download their app directly from Amazon. According to their new website, there’s over $10,000 worth of free applications and games already available. Now whether this will actually be a success or not, we will have to wait and see, but it is a pretty interesting idea.
