  • A tipster has provided Android Authority with sYouTube Playables screenshots.
  • This previously announced feature is still in beta.
  • This feature lets you play a selection of games instantly without downloads on Android, iOS and desktop.

Τον Σεπτέμβριο, η Google ανακοίνωσε μια νέα λειτουργία του YouTube που ονομάζεται Playables. Αυτό το νέο προνόμιο θα επιτρέψει στους χρήστες να ενεργοποιούν άμεσα ορισμένα παιχνίδια απευθείας στην εφαρμογή YouTube χωρίς να χρειάζεται να κατεβάσουν τίποτα. Στην ανακοίνωσή της για αυτήν τη δυνατότητα, η Google είπε ότι θα εξαπλώσει την πρώιμη πρόσβαση σε περιορισμένο αριθμό χρηστών, αλλά δεν έχουμε ακούσει πολλά από τότε.

Thanks to a tipster, though, we now have our first in-depth look at YouTube Playables. You can check out the screenshots below for a good idea of ​​what to expect.

YouTube Playables: Leaked screenshots

As expected, the games offered here are mobile titles. That's interesting, given that Google says this feature will work on both mobile and desktop. Regardless, you shouldn't expect Playables to be a Stadia resurrection, as these options don't indicate that AAA console titles are on the way.

From the screenshots we have, here are the games we can expect:

  • Extreme Scooter
  • Out brain
  • 8 Ball Billiards Classic
  • 3D color explosion
  • Stack bounce
  • Daily crossword
  • Daily Solitaire
  • Colored Art
  • Carrom Clash
  • Cannon Balls 3D
  • FRVR Basketball
  • Angry showdown
  • Cube Tower
  • Crazy Caves

From the screenshots, we see that this Playables demo is open until March 28th. In theory, this means we shouldn't expect a full rollout of the service after that date. Google hasn't given any information on when Playables is expected to actually launch, so it's likely that we won't see it in stable form until the first half of 2024. Until then, you'll need to be a YouTube Premium subscriber and lucky enough to be invited to the test phase.

In particular, the προσφέρει παιχνίδια για κινητά ως μέρος της σειράς Netflix Games. Από ό,τι έχουμε δει μέχρι στιγμής, το Playables μοιάζει με άμεσο ανταγωνιστή σε αυτό. Ο χρόνος θα δείξει ποια θα είναι ο νικητής.

Thanks to Alex V. for the tip!
