YouTube Begins Rolling Out Live-Streaming Feature


YouTube is finally adding live-streaming support to its mobile app. The company has announced that it will soon add the live streaming feature for both Android andiOS users. To start a live video, the users just need to tap on the big red capture button placed in the corner and select an image to be used as a thumbnail. Once done the users can start the live broadcast to followers. YouTube will also add live-streamed videos to its app and it will have all the features of a regular video. The users will also be able to find them via recommendations and playlists.
YouTube had first rolled out the feature to some beta testers including Young Turks, AIB, Platica Polinesia, SacconeJolys and Alex Wassabi at VidCon.
The company also said on its blog that it will gradually roll out the feature to users worldwide, so don’t get alarmed in case you don’t see it on your app. YouTube also said that the users will be able to search for livestreams.
YouTube is a bit late in rolling out the live streaming feature and will face tough competition from Fcaebook, who is very aggressively pushing out the live streaming feature on its platform. Along with this Twitter and Yahoo also introduced the live streaming feature for its Periscope and Tumblr app respectively.
