YouTube mobile live streaming being rolled out
YouTube is giving Facebook some competition with an announcement that soon, you’ll be able to live stream to the site from your phone.
Facebook live was launched more than a year ago and has transformed into a regular feature of using the social network.
Now, YouTube is saying that they will be rolling out the option on their site as well – something that was promised in June 2016.
YouTube channels with more than 10,000 subscribers will be first to get mobile live streaming.
YouTube has only specified “soon” as to when it’ll be available to those without that level of YouTube popularity.
What is expected to happen is this: the site will add a live button to the mobile app on your phone or tablet.
Live videos will show up in your recommendations and in playlists or via a search – the creator can also make them accessible only to people with the link.
Viewers will also be able to talk to YouTubers during live videos through a chat.
