YouTube Launches Live Streaming For Mobile App

Posted at June 28th, 2016 | by Guest Writer | in

Live streaming has become the new hot topic these days. With Facebook and Twitter introducing mobile solutions to let users live stream videos directly from their phone, the social media got fueled up to another level itself. Thanks to the feature, we can see live performances/conferences happening in one part of the world at the same time sitting at the comfort of our home.

The big news is that the Google-owned video giant YouTube has recently announced that it is finally offering live streaming on its mobile app. YouTube is undoubtedly the biggest video repository on the web and has had live streaming for a while but moving this platform to mobile is a pretty big step. The users will soon be able to directly broadcast from their phones to YouTube audience.

As YouTube stated in a blog post, “YouTube mobile live streaming will be baked right into the core YouTube mobile app. You won’t need to open anything else, just hit the big red capture button right there in the corner, take or select a photo to use as a thumbnail, and you can broadcast live to your fans and chat in near real time.

YouTube has hosted live streaming of videos since 2011 but this would be the first time users will be able to stream from their mobile phones. Also as per the company, due to YouTube’s peerless infrastructure, these live streams will be faster and more reliable than anything else out there. Watch YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojciki give her keynote address at this year’s VidCon below:
