    "For what it wanted to accomplish, it was a good alternative to Twitch. It couldn't quite compete as well as Google wanted it to so it will be integrated into the main youtube platform instead of being a standalone option. Good effort and this move should reduce any complications or confusion users might have had before."

    "Still the best alternative to Twitch with a broader, more general audience base. So many broadcasting tools support uploading directly to it now so its the best time to try and experiment with this platform now outside of twitch for all you gameplay streams."

    "Been using this to stream my games for a few months now and so far, so good. No issues so far. It doesn't have as wide a reach as twitch or youtube does but the community here is nice with only the occasional toxic players every now and then."

    "It's a good screen mirroring app and casting to other devices works well enough. Streaming is a little hit or miss though. Lag is pretty noticeable even with a decent internet connection and those ads can be quite bothersome in certain situations."

    "Not a streaming app per se but it is a useful tool for editing and color grading videos in post before you upload them to the platform of your choice. This is a good choice if you want to tweaks to your videos first before sharing them."
