YouTube has its live stream video feature active for years now, but it took Google Inc a really long time to decide to add such a feature to its mobile app.
Google will soon bring the power of live video streaming to everyone, through its mobile YouTube App update. A built into the core of the YouTube app feature will allow anyone to start video streaming just by pressing the big red button in the corner of the app itself, as depicted in the screenshots above. The app will also allow Youtubers to chat in real time with their fans while streaming videos.
“We think this will offer you an entirely new, more intimate and spontaneous way to share your experiences with your communities. We’re launching today with The Young Turks, AIB, Platica Polinesia, SacconeJolys, and Alex Wassabi at VidCon and will be rolling it out more widely soon,” YouTube Creator blog states in a public post.
The update is not yet available to everyone but, it will probably roll out in stages globally.
