Notes, YouTube Mobile Live streaming Option Is NOT Available for Everyone Yet
YouTube’s live streaming feature has been in the news for quite some time. At first, it was available to selected channels with the significant fan base, but recently the company has been minimizing its requirements.
In a report revealed by AndroidPolice YouTube is rolling out to all users without subscription requirements. But a spokesperson from YouTube, later on, denied the report in a statement given to The Verge:
We’ve been experimenting and expanding mobile live streaming for almost a year now. But for the time being it is available to an only small subset of users.
There has been no official announcement about the launch of mobile streaming option for all, by Google. It seems that it is little odd because YouTube is currently organizing the I/O 2017 developer conference wherein it is dropping a lot of details in news.
According to report by AndroidPolice some users with less than required 1K subscriber base to get the live streaming feature available. It could also be an indication for impending wider rollout. Sadly, YouTube is still not ready to give it to all users.
YouTube is also testing it on smaller user base right now, but we can expect video streaming giant to make it available to all users. In April YouTube dropped subscriber requirement to 1,000 from 10,000 it many others is worth nothing that not everyone can use the livestreaming feature on the app it is still limited to users with verified channel.
Well using live streaming on app pretty simple you just need to go to upload section and then tap on live stream option. The app will then ask you to upload thumbnail and title.
While it is nice to see YouTube bringing a new feature to its platforms for most of the channel owners but we are also worried about impending implications.
We have already witnessed many users misusing Facebook’s live streaming feature. We hope YouTube has tools to prevent its feature from running into troubles.
