Time To Push The Red Button: YouTube Announces Live-Streaming For Mobile

So far, you were more of a viewer and commenter than a content creator on YouTube. Now’s the time to get over your fears and push the red button, as the Google-owned video platform is getting live-streaming on its mobile app #videomagic

At VidCon keynote, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced the big news and demonstrated the new feature. Live-streaming on YouTube from your phone will remind you of Periscope, since the UI is fairly similar. You can see live interactions from other users as speech bubbles that pop on the screen; you’ll have a viewer count, “like” count and a button that lets you switch from front to rear camera. You also have the option of using a photo as a title banner for your broadcast.

Now, live-streaming is tested by YouTube’s biggest creators but you’ll get to experiment with it pretty soon.

Facebook might have been the first to advertise the same feature on its platform, but YouTube has the popular creators and big media companies on its side, not to mention an audience of 1 billion users, who watch an average of 40 minutes of videos per day on mobile devices.
