The market of gaming industry is huge and gamers always try to keep themselves updated about new developments in the industry.

Here are top five platforms for gamers that provide extra support to their game and enhances their gaming experience:


A live streaming game app by LiveMe, it allows users to watch live streaming of popular games, such as Rules of Survival, GTA5, Call of Duty, PUBG MOBILE, Fortnite, Arena of Valor, Minecraft, CSGO, League of Legends, DOTA2, Clash Royale and many more.

It is dedicated to enhancing the gamer experience with innovative user-interactive features and delivers high-quality live streams, rich gaming content, and an interactive and immersive gaming community.


It is a video gaming portal dedicated to providing reviews, previews, news, downloads, and other information on video games. Launched by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein on May 1, 1996, it has won 'Best Gaming Website' by the viewers in Spike TV's second Video Game Award Show and several Webby Awards. The portal attracts around 100 million visitors annually according to a study.

PlayStation Official App

It is free and runs on Android 2.2 or greater. With the help of this app one can put PlayStation at fingertips anytime and anywhere. One can take a look at the games, achievements, current placements and more. The app is also set up to easily help one find the next favorite game.


Best platform for gamers to socialize for any gaming-related issue. It is nothing more than a hub of independent communities- subreddits. Subreddits are user-driven where anyone can create a subreddit whenever they want and each subreddit is run by different moderators, and the quality of a subreddit often depends on who's running it.

Steam voice chat

Developed by Valve, it is a must have platform for any gamer. It is a gaming platform that stores the purchased games in a library. One can invite friends and contact them by sending text or voice messages. It's not as professional tool as some people would like, but it does have the basic features a gamer would love to have.
