Google has reportedly contributed to a Series D funding round raised by Chinese live-streaming eSports platform Chushou.
“Chushou has built an impressive platform, with a dedicated and quickly growing base of content creators and consumers, and smart expansion plans,” said Frank Lin, Google’s head of corporate development in North Asia, in a statement.
“We’re excited to be supporting Chushou through this investment to help them execute those plans, bringing great mobile gaming content to more people around the world.”
Chushou claims that some 8 million game streamers use the site and that it averages 250,000 live streams a day.
Back in 2014 Google was reported to be in the running to buy US game streaming platform Twitch, before Amazon agreed to pay US$970 million in cash for the service.
