YouTube’s online games catalogue Playables goes live with 75 games available to play directly on the platform

Another games platform!

Playables, the online games catalogue from YouTube that was in the works for some time now, has now gone live with 75 games available to play directly on the platform, cutting off the hassle of installing a secondary app for the same.

Playables will get is full rollout in the coming months

This testing of Playables began a while back, where in mid-2023 it was reported YouTube was testing a product to offer online games.

The games, available previously to select users and YouTube Premium subscribers, do not monetize through paid downloads or in-app purchases, so they avoid direct competition with the App Store although it competes for free games in the App Store that make their money via ads. The platform also rivals Netflix Games, which offers a comparable approach with a broader game selection.

Well, coming to the available titles, 75 games are part of it already. Titles like Angry Birds Showdown, Words of Wonders, Cut the Rope, Tomb of the Mask, and Trivia Crack, games from Google’s HTML minigames service, are available. If you are concerned about your progress, you will be able to save game progress and track scores.

If you are wondering how to access the platform, you don’t need to download anything extra. Go to the YouTube Home page on the desktop or the Android and iOS app, and find Playables in the Explore menu. By clicking it, you can find the list of games you can play. You can also share games with friends by tapping the three-dot menu.
