Latest YouTube Gaming update includes more than meets the eye


YouTube Gaming may not be the first choice as a platform to stream your favorite games to your viewers, but that’s not stopping the updates from coming in. The latest update brings the app to version 1.4.41 and adds a few new useful features.

The changelog found on the Play Store differs a bit from what the folks at Android Police were able to find in their “APK Teardown”.

Official Changelog:

  • Support for dismissing recommended videos
  • Improved video quality in the pop-out player
  • Live viewer count automatically updates on the watch page
  • Performance improvements and bug fixes

APK Teardown:

  • Recommended videos now have a ‘Not interested’ option in the overflow menu
  • “Go Live” has been removed from the main overflow menu
  • New “Event notifications” toggle in Settings –> General
  • Easter egg count went from 4 to 5

The update was pushed to devices starting yesterday, and should be making its way to your device sooner rather than later.
