YouTube Gaming is a meta-channel for gamers, and an app too

YouTube is now launching a dedicated meta channel – that is, a collection of channels – that is all about gaming and gamers. It’s called “YouTube Gaming” and it features over 25,000 game-related pages which include device manufacturers, gaming accessory makers, and game developers. It will also include the even more numerous gaming-related channels in YouTube.

Google to publicly launch YouTube Gaming tomorrow, August 26

Twitch has introduced a new level of gaming but it will soon have a rival when YouTube Gaming goes live. We described it as Google’s own version of vicarious gaming and we'll know soon enough how it would change the live gaming landscape. The timing may be a bit late because summer is over and school has just started but hey, this is a new kind of gaming I'm pretty sure most geeks would love to try and get into.

Google outs Infinix HOT 2, first Android One phone in Africa

There's been an explosion in Africa and no, it's not the deadly kind. Google just said that because Internet is exploding in Africa, it's time the search giant brings the Android One program to most of the countries in the continent including Ghana, Nigeria, Morocco, Kenya, Egypt, and Ivory Coast.

YouTube Live Broadcast announced, ready to beat Periscope and Meerkat

Google has just introduced YouTube Live Broadcast. It's a new special feature on the recently announced Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 from Samsung. So it's another live streaming platform but making it different from the other available programs out there is the fact that anyone can simply watch a live broadcast on YouTube without having to download a special app. The videos are beamed from a mobile device straight privately or publicly to people by only accessing a YouTube page.

YouTube puts an end to 301+ view count temporary freeze

YouTube 301 will be no more. Finally, Google decided to stop freezing view counts when a video reaches 301+ views. Just in case you didn't know, YouTube stops views at 301 to check if views are not from spam bots. The "pause" doesn't take long but it can be frustrating for those who want to see progress of their recently uploaded or shared videos. That will no longer be the case as the search giant is eliminating that step in the process.

Changes afoot in Google+ profiles, YouTube comments 

As Google continues to figure out what to do with Google+, they are slowly making changes to the “social network” and admitting that they may have made several mistakes along the way. Today, they shared some tweaks they are doing, just a few days after they announced how Google+ Photos and Google Photos will be different as well as changing the private management aspect of the former. YouTube is also undergoing a few minor changes, specifically in how creators can manage comments.

YouTube Android app now automatically adjusts vertical videos

No matter how many video tutorials you put out there, no matter how many strangers you see taking mobile videos the wrong way in public, people will still take videos vertically. Whether it’s stubbornness, laziness, or just plain ignorance, a lot of people still take their videos vertically, even though we all know that horizontal is the right way. Some apps have resorted to just embrace it rather than whine about it. YouTube is the latest one to do so, as its Android app now recognizes and adjusts it accordingly.

Google shows off new 360 degree video ads

Never underestimate Google when it comes to innovating products and services. And when it comes to its AdWords program, expect Google to work on it because along with YouTube and mobile search, the ad program is one of the company's constant source of revenue as we noted in the latest Q2 financial results. Admit it or not, video is currently the most effective way to market a product.
