Yahoo is expanding its platform to include the world of competitive gaming with its new Yahoo Esports app. Esports is a growing industry with millions of players competing all over the world. Now Yahoo wants to serve as the go-to news source for esports enthusiasts.
The Yahoo Esports app is an Android application that currently covers five popular games: Dota 2, Heroes of the Storm, Global Offensive, Street Fighter V and League of Legends. The app allows users to set reminders for when matches are about to start and then stream the games directly in the app. The app also features a dedicated newsfeed for each game, with real-time stats and video interviews with players.
With plans for an iOS version of the app already in the works, the platform provides a useful resource for competitive gamers.
