The Playable feature offers a collection of games to users of the video streaming service without any downloads. Now, the games can be played directly on the YouTube website or through its Android and iOS apps.

This feature was first introduced in November 2023 with 30 arcade games available only to Premium Subscription users in select markets. This initial phase was closed because it included fewer titles. The decision to make Playables widely available came as a growing number of technology companies like Linkledin, The New York Times and Netflix have added casual games to their services as a way to attract and retain users.

All YouTube users can now access Playable and enjoy around 75 titles through the Playable selection, which no longer requires a YouTube Premium subscription. It seems the roll out of the Playable will occur in phases, as some users tried to access the feature but were unable to do so because the page displayed an error when visiting the official URL. This tab is not yet available in the system navigation menu on both iOS and Android.

As of now, YouTube Playables offers around 75 games from different categories to suit users’ interests. Some popular games include Angry Birds Showdown, Cut The Rope, and Trivia Crack. The games are placed in different categories, this selection diversifies and ensures that there is something for all users.
