Discover YouTube Game-Changing Feature for 2024

Now, it is possible to play games on YouTube instead of watching videos. That’s right, mobile and desktop users of all ages can now play games on the platform whenever they want, wherever they want. In order to play these games, you must open the Feature website or Android and iOS app, then click on “Playables” in the sidebar. The program offers more than 75 games, including popular mobile game titles like Angry Birds Showdown, as well as chess and crosswords.

Which would go perfectly with their already growing e-commerce sector consisting primarily of merchandise sales. It will be interesting to see what happens next because since most people don’t pay attention anymore after releasing something, it becomes hard to get back into that mindset again. We’ll see how long it takes until another update comes out. Still, until then, this will have to do.
