YouTube Experiments With A New Gaming Feature ‘Playables’

Users can now play games on YouTube with new Playables feature!

YouTube has been one of the best video-sharing platforms and also the best streaming platform for gamers. Since YT has played a vital role in the lives of gamers, it is now experimenting with a new feature that will allow users to play games on the platform. That’s true! YouTube is currently testing a new gaming feature Playables. Here’s everything you must know about the new gaming feature on YT.

Play Games On YouTube With ‘Playables’ Gaming Feature

YT Playables

YouTube has been experimenting with a gaming feature Playables that will allow the users to directly play on the YouTube app and website. However, the platform has not yet revealed a list of games that will be available.

Playing directly on YouTube will also help you promote video on YouTube, as your audience can visit your channel and watch videos.

But, according to a report by 9 to 5 Google, Stack Bounce is one of the early games that will be a part of YouTube Playables. However, it is still unknown if this game will be a part of the testing phase.

As this feature is still being tested, it won’t be available to all users. But if you are one of the selected users, then you will be able to access the feature on the mobile app and the YT website. A new section, ‘Playables,’ will be seen for the selected users.

Also, YT experimental features are available for Premium subscribers, so there is a high chance that YouTube may restrict some games only for Premium users while experimenting and launching the Playables feature.


YouTube has always worked on getting better by introducing new features like the search by song feature and the enhanced bitrate feature to improve user experience. If you’re a huge gaming fanatic, then you need to look out for a new space for YouTube Playables on the platform. This feature will allow users to play games on the YT app and use the desktop version to buy YouTube views for free. Try updating your YT app to see if the Playables feature is still available to you.

In the near future, there is a huge possibility that Playables may be available on YouTube TV.
