Once the users find a comprehensive list of available games, it will enable them to easily select and play their favourites. The interface of these games includes options like save, mute and unmute; providing a seamless gaming experience to the users.

Limited launch with plans for expansion

At present, the Playables feature on YouTube is available to selected users in the United States, Canada, Australia and Britain. This limited launch will enable YouTube to test and refine the feature before a broader rollout. 

However, the video streaming platform further plans to expand this gaming feature to other countries in the upcoming months, bringing the fun of gaming to more users worldwide.
