Google has begun public testing of YouTube‘s move into gaming, which follows years of the video platform branching out into adjacent sectors like music, TV and podcasts. The games, under the banner of “Playables”, are now available to a “limited number” of YouTube users, and if you’re in then you should see the new section on the homepage.

The announcement came via YouTube’s “test features and experiments” page (thanks, 9to5Google), which allows Premium accounts to opt-in to testing potential new elements of the site. The Playables section was first reported on last year, when it was apparently being tested internally, and no doubt employees were given strict instructions never to utter the name Stadia.
