YouTube opens up mobile livestreams to more users

by John_A

It hasn’t been that long since YouTube rolled out livestreaming for those who want to broadcast directly from their phones. The caveat was that you had to have at least 10,000 subscribers to enable the feature. Today, however, the video service has made live video available to YouTubers with a smaller subscription base. If you’ve got at least 1,000 subscribers to your channel, you can go live on the go.

Streaming live to your YouTube channel is pretty easy, too. If you meet the subscriber requirements, you simply hop into the Creator Studio tools and enable livestreaming. Then you use the YouTube mobile app to create a livestream. YouTube will automatically save an archive for you as well.

Allowing folks with smaller YouTube followings to livestream like this gives the video service a larger pool of content, for sure. This could better help them take on Facebook, which continues to upgrade its own offerings with Facebook Live. Keeping the feature to established channel owners will also let the service test its live feature with a more technically diverse audience before possibly opening the door to everyone.
