Google is trying to reach gamers now and Twitch is a company that they are interested in buying. Google wants to get its hooks into the gamers who spend so much of their time not at their computers but in front of their televisions.
YouTube–the web giant’s online video arm–is poised to spend $1 billion on Twitch, a streaming internet service that lets people share videos of games they play on consoles like the Microsoft Xbox and the Sony PlayStation–and watch such videos posted by others.
Will Google have as much success as they did with the chrome books? Some people wonder if they will have success with their own console system.
