YouTube introduces ‘Playables’ game arcade for Premium subscribers: Here’s how to enable the feature

YouTube is expanding its offerings for Premium subscribers, and adding some new experimental features for its paying members to try out. The video-hosting and streaming service already has a major presence in gaming, but now YouTube Premium members can actually play games on YouTube without any downloads. The platform has launched ‘Playables’, a new collection of over 30 arcade games that can be played on the YouTube app on Android, iOS and the web.

YouTube Premium members received a notification for new features on the app last week. Paying customers now have the option to enable playables on the platform and start playing games immediately without downloading them.

To play games on YouTube, launch the app on Android or iOS, or visit the YouTube website on the web. Users can search or find the Playables Shelf by scrolling down on the homepage playable Option in the Explore menu on the app. However, make sure to turn on the Play Games on YouTube option on the experimental new features Page, It can also be accessed on the YouTube app on mobile by tapping on your profile icon in the bottom right, scrolling down to ‘Your Premium Benefits’ and then tapping on ‘Try experimental new features’.

There are currently 37 games in playables, including action games like Angry Birds Showdown and Cannon Balls 3D, puzzle titles like Daily Crossword and Brain Out, and card games like Daily Solitaire and Gin Rummy. It’s also worth noting that the Playables feature is available to Premium members until March 28th. The Arcade service may later see a wider rollout to subscribers and add more premium games in the future, like the Netflix Games service.

In addition to Playables, YouTube has also added AI-powered comment summaries as part of new experimental features for Premium subscribers. Available until December 5, the feature uses AI to organize and summarize comments published on YouTube videos with larger comment sections. To use this feature, users can choose to sort by topics on any comment section on the YouTube Android and iOS apps. Specifically, users can only enable one of the two new experimental features at a time. Therefore, to access AI comment summaries, you need to disable the Playables feature.

Earlier this month, YouTube expanded its enhanced bitrate offering to 1080p videos for Premium users. Initially this feature was only introduced on iOS, now the feature is available on Android devices and smart TVs.
