Youtube's standalone gaming days are out of lives.

Four years later, this is Youtube Gaming's last week before the app and interface is completely absored into the main site as google announced last year.

"We want to continue to build a stronger home for the gaming community that thrives on YouTube, not just the YouTube Gaming app," the company said in its post.

YouTube will merge existing YouTube Gaming subscriptions to the main site but gaming metadata and content on the other hand is a different story. Youtube Gaming was set up as google's answer to Twitch after Amazon acquired it for a billion dollars.

Gaming remains a popular genre on youtube but Youtube's direction is to meld that audience with the rest of its mainline content traffic.
