Game streaming service Twitch could be taken over by Google, says VentureBeat which specifies that it would be the division of YouTube which would take care of the operation. The transaction amount could reach a billion dollars.

Based in San Francisco, Twitch is a platform on which users can broadcast their video game sessions (PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, etc.) and chat with each other. It currently has 45 million users worldwide.

Founded in 2011 by Justin Kan and Emmett Shear, the company had raised $ 20 million in September 2013.
