Google “Playables” will let People Play Games on YouTube

According to The Wall Street Journal, Google is reportedly testing a new product that will let users play games on YouTube

Google is reportedly testing a new product called “Playables,” which would allow users to play games instantly through the YouTube app on mobile devices and desktop computers. One of the games currently playable in the testing period is called Stack Bounce, an arcade game similar to Brick Breaker Arcade on Android.

“Gaming has long been a focus at YouTube,” a YouTube spokesman said in a statement. “We’re always experimenting with new features but have nothing to announce right now.”

The recent report comes at an interesting time for Google, should it plan to venture off into the gaming space once more. Google’s previous attempt was its cloud gaming platform, Stadia, which launched back in 2019, but Google announced last September it was shutting down the service on January 18, 2023. Prior to that, Google outsourced the tech that powered Stadia; one example included a white-label product, with AT&T using it to allow customers to stream a demo of Batman: Arkham Knight free of charge.
