YouTube is getting into gaming with its new service called Playables. This marks the video and music streaming giant’s entry into the gaming industry. Speculation about YouTube’s gaming service had been circulating since June, indicating that the platform would be integrating simple arcade-like games. The rumors have been confirmed, and YouTube has added the ‘Playables’ gaming experience to its test features and experiments. This new gaming feature offers an interesting experience for viewers, allowing them to play games directly on YouTube, whether on desktop or mobile devices. The games are described as simple arcade-style time wasters rather than complex adventures.

The ongoing experiment involves a select group of YouTube users who will have access to a section called ‘Playables’ on their YouTube home feed. Participants will also be able to view and manage their playable history and saved game progress in their regular YouTube history menu. The specific games available to these early testers have not been disclosed, but a game called “Stack Bounce,” which involves breaking bricks with a bouncing ball, was mentioned in a report. These games are developed in HTML 5.

YouTube’s homepage is soon expected to feature a suite of new mini-games as the video-sharing platform enters the testing phase for this feature. Currently, this feature is only accessible to a small number of beta testers. If you are one of these testers, the feature, named “Playables,” should appear in a separate tab on the homepage.

Reports indicate that a game called Stack Bounce is among the titles available in this experimental feature. In this game, players control a ball that breaks through rings with well-timed clicks. The name may sound familiar, as Google’s GameSnack service used to include Stack Bounce.

It’s important to note that navigating a 3D ball is quite distinct from the types of games previously offered by Google Stadia. According to Google, the system will save game progress, which can be accessed through the ‘History’ tab.
