Pixel 6a vs. Pixel 6 camera test has a clear (but narrow) winner

The Pixel 6a has an old 12.2MP camera. The Pixel 6 has a newer 50MP camera. It doesn’t seem like a fair comparison, but it’s closer than you’d think.

Gamers and streamers – a winner is you!

It’s you who makes YouTube the most watched platform for gamers—far and away. Every month gamers watch more than 144 billion minutes of gaming videos and live streams on YouTube. To put it into perspective, that’s like watching Let’s Plays for more than 270,000 years straight 24 hours a day—or beating Final Fantasy VII 1,900,000 times a day!

Today’s updates to YouTube Gaming are the next step in our quest to create the best place for gamers to come together to watch gaming videos, build communities, and live stream. We’ve listened to your feedback since September and have been working on some of the most requested new features and improvements.

Mobile Capture: Empowering streams of every shape and size
Every day, games are played while waiting for the bus, riding the subway, or lounging on the couch—but what about live streaming your mobile gameplay? You heard it from us at the Tokyo Game Show and now it’s here to stay. You can now record and live stream mobile gameplay on-the-go directly from Android devices using Mobile Capture on YouTube Gaming. You don’t need any additional hardware or software—just tap Go Live (or your avatar on a phone) in the YouTube Gaming app, turn on your selfie cam and record your commentary with your phone’s microphone.

Narrate and react to your gameplay using the phone’s microphone and a selfie-cam overlay. Entertain and interact with your audience via live chat. Go live and capture all Android games today! 

Sponsorships: Making it easy to back your favorite gamers
Support the live streams and videos you love with Fan Funding and Sponsorships, now in beta to a small group of creators. For a monthly payment, sponsors receive extra perks including a live chat badge chosen by the creator and access to exclusive chat sessions. We’ll continuously expand the list of beta channels, so keep your eyes peeled!

Other new and improved features
Here are some of the other requested changes we’ve made to date. Thanks for the feedback and keep it coming!

  • More easily see when there are live streams for games in your collection
  • Easier video bookmarking with Watch Later
  • Improved performance and a redesigned watch page on gaming.youtube.com
  • Better search navigation on iOS by remembering your previous searches
  • Import existing subscriptions anytime from YouTube via Settings

Go live today with the newly updated YouTube Gaming app available on Google Play and the App Store, for U.S. and U.K.

YouTube AdBlitz votes are in, and the winner is …

The last great battle for big game ad supremacy was waged last week as votes for your favorite ads came flooding in. Not only was this the biggest year ever for big game ads on YouTube, this was a banner year for the ads on the YouTube AdBlitz channel.

With nearly 40 percent more total votes cast this year than last, this year’s fan favorite received 60 percent more votes than last year’s top pick. And which brand landed on top of the list this year?

Congrats to Nissan, voted by fans to be their Favorite Super Bowl Commercial of 2015. Nissan tugged your heartstrings showcasing their “With Dad” commercial, and garnered the most votes against some very stiff competition to become the YouTube AdBlitz 2015 Champion!

 

Here are the rest of the top 5 favorite big game ads as determined by your votes: Landing in second place is Clash of Clans’ “Revenge” spot featuring one “Angry Neeson.”

 

In third, Dodge inspired us with some generational “Wisdom.”

 

Last year’s winner, Budweiser, had another strong showing with their “Lost Dog” commercial coming in fourth.

 

And rounding out our top 5 is Jeep, who explored the beauty of the globe with “Beautiful Lands.”

 

Visit the AdBlitz channel to watch all of this year’s big game ads.
