Kinda buggy, but cool
JSFalconS4595 on 11/17/2017
There are still some bugs like the rotation glitch, but I hope it gets fixed soon
It does not work on iOS
one thing wrong with this on 11/17/2017
It’s good for watching live streams and videos but on iOS you can’t live stream
60 FPS won’t work
voidvixion on 11/17/2017
I’ve loved the app for a long time, but with the most recent update, I can no longer watch videos in 60 FPS anymore.
Stop complaining that there is no recording or streaming for iOS
Rubiks Cuber on 11/17/2017
Do you people even know anything about iPhones? Apple is very strict when it comes to recording and streaming on any iOS device. And iOS has its own screen recorder now anyway, so there’s nothing to complain about! Anyway, I think this app is great for when you just want to watch videos about gaming and don’t want those random non gaming related videos.
Pure and utter ridiculousness
Ramcharger78 on 11/16/2017
Your complete inability to make your apps function properly is disgusting. Every time I go into full screen mode on the regular YouTube app and touch the screen, the app freezes completely, and I have to wait for my phone to respond. I switched to YouTube Gaming because it didn’t have that problem. This recent update changed that, forcing me to uninstall both YouTube and YouTube Gaming. I have found an alternative and will be using it for the foreseeable future. I am sick and tired of you screwing up your apps with every update. No matter how many people complain, you still do nothing to fix it. Try actually focusing on fixing actual problems instead of adding useless features no one cares about. I hope someone is reading these reviews and is doing something to remedy these issues, but I’m going to assume I’m wrong. Fix these issues and fix your broken copyright system.
It’s okay
uhh, read this? on 11/16/2017
This is good just to watch. But I can’t record or livestream my screen (I own iOS; iPhone6S+). I just updated and I haven’t checked it, but if it’s still not letting me, it needs to be fixed.
Kidd Sin on 11/16/2017
How in the world do you release two updates within the span of a few weeks from one another with this being the most recent and still have an issue with the thumbnails not showing up?! It’s like updates these days either don’t fix a thing or just makes things worse.
How is this
cmj05 on 11/11/2017
How is this not on the Apple TV?

Please Update this as soon as you guys can fix it Many apps have integrated the New IOS 11 features with screen Mirroring. Please fix this!! I love the app otherwise!

gamertubehub on 10/14/2017
You should make it able to stream from iOS on 11 since it can screen record it would really help plus to new update has casting abilities so you can make and update pls
AsxiaLoove on 10/13/2017
I can't record on my IPhone!
Potato Power Woman on 10/11/2017
This app is cool, but for some reason you can't record on the IPhone! I though it was a small bug so I deleted it and reinstalled it and it STILL wasn't there! I'm getting impatient, but isnt it harder to make one phone not have a record button and the other to have one? It just makes no sense on why you did this. Please fix/add this.
Better than youtube
eboy the savage on 10/11/2017
Way better than youtube
Good, but needs dark mode.
KyloCrux on 10/10/2017
Absolutely love the app and the features. Helpful for meeting new streamers and getting involved with the community. Just wish it had dark mode like the desktop version.
Please make it for iOS user
AJVLIVE on 10/10/2017
ONE YEAR LATER AND STILL NO IOS LIVE STREAMING SMH Please make it compatible with iOS users to record live stream gameplay this would be awesome..I hope this would be the next update for it beside that this is a great app👍👍👍

Ladlee on 10/6/2017
I think it’d be nice to have all this built into the YouTube app. Country is divided enough as is

YouTube Gaming —> New IPhone screen recorder of IOS 11
Bubbles(orange bird) on 9/23/2017
The YouTube developers (Google) should make YouTube gaming compatible with the new IOS 11 screen recorder. So we can not only post videos of our screen, but live stream with them.
Love It
Epicsexyboy on 9/22/2017
Great for a nerd like me
Battery Drain

Needs A Sponsor Feature
Xanplays on 9/17/2017
Youtube Gaming is good and all but there needs to be a sponsor button when your are watching someone that has the ability to be sponsored. It's on the Android app but not on IOS it makes no sense. So please add this feature soon
It doesn't stream
Durple on 9/16/2017
If you have an iOS device you hope to stream on, do NOT use this app! It can't do that, so just stick with normal YouTube.

IOS Streaming
BuckWheatYT on 9/11/2017
The app is great! The thing that makes me mad is that I cant stream on my iPhone, but my friend can with his Samsung Galaxy, great app just please add IOS streaming
Ignorant users down voting this app
2noob2bTrue on 9/9/2017
You can only stream from this app if the app you want to capture supports it. Not all apps support Apple's streaming API that YouTube gaming requires to stream them.
Version 2.00.1
ATOMINE on 9/8/2017
Good Stuff Google! If your AirPlay button is missing, try clearing your cache on your phone then look for the AirPlay button again.
