YouTube Gets Mobile Live Streaming

...

YouTube has been in the live streaming game for a number of years now, but you have never been able to live stream from a mobile device. That seems odd, since YouTube is still video king and Google is a company who has heavily invested its future in mobile. Instead, those who want to live stream from anywhere on mobile have had to turn to services like Periscope and Facebook, who were early into mobile live streaming game.

Today, YouTube is joining the party. As a part of VidCon, YouTube and Google announced that mobile live streaming is arriving to a select group of YouTubers immediately and will then rollout “more widely soon.” 

To stream via YouTube app, you won’t need a separate app (which is shocking, since this is YouTube we are talking about). All you’ll need is the latest version of the app and a tap on a new “big red” capture button. You can select photos as a thumbnail and broadcast and chat in “near real time.”

Once a stream has finished, the video will be just like any other video in that you will be able to search for them, find them through recommendations, and protect them. Sounds easy, right?

We’ll let you know once the update starts becoming available to all.
