  • YouTube Playables will be shut down on Thursday, March 28.
  • This isn’t a surprise as YouTube confirmed at the time of the feature’s reveal that it would last until March 28.
  • Playables allowed users to (surprise) play a variety of simplistic games on YouTube via streaming.

YouTube announced Playables late last year, as it tested the ability for users to play simple games on the video streaming platform. Now, it turns out that Playables are leaving the service in a few days.

YouTube Playables are “going away” on March 28, according to the platform’s Experiments page. The feature was available to Premium users via Android, iOS, and the web.
