YouTube has announced plans to launch a dedicated site and app for gaming in an attempt to take on Amazon-owned streaming service Twitch.

Twitch allows gaming fans to watch and interact with live broadcasts of others playing games. Google, which owns YouTube, is understood to have made a bid for Twitch last year, only to be beaten by Amazon’s $970 million offer, reports the BBC.

The search giant said the service would launch later this summer.
