Strong Rival For Twitch

Youtube has plans for live online game streaming

According to a report in the publication Ars Technica this week, Google's Youtube is about to become a competitor to Twitch (popular in online poker live streaming) which is currently the Internet's biggest live streaming platform and was bought by Amazon last year for almost a billion dollars.
Youtube Live will reportedly feature live gaming and e-sports content in particular, and in preparation for its launch the company has apparently engaged more than 50 additional live streaming-experienced engineers.
Informed industry observers estimate that the launch could be as soon as June this year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
Youtube has more than a billion users with over 300 minutes of video being uploaded every minute. The company started livestreaming major events and television broadcasts in 2010, but have since scaled back.
Neither Google nor Youtube have commented on the reports.
