Earlier this year Google already said that they could be interest in the Live-Streaming platform twitch.
Now that seems to become a reality, according to VentureBeat, Google is willing to pay $1 billion for the popular streaming site. Live-streaming continues to gain traction, it is the leading video platform for gamers and has more than 45 million visitors per month.
Google bought YouTube back in 2005 for $1.3 billion, with twitch they could further bolster their market position in this segment.
Google did not comment on the rumors but the acquisition would make sense for Google and looking at recent Silicon Valley purchases the amount seems realistic as nothing with potential goes under a billion these days.
