Livestreaming is changing the face of broadcasts and YouTube is one of those platforms that people can use to watch their favourite shows but the thing is not everyone can use it. Right now you need to have about 1,000 subscribers to use the feature but it looks like that is about to change.
But even the 1,000 subscriber requirement is new because before now, you were required to have at least 10,000 subscribers and now it looks like all you need is a verified channel.
As reports have it, YouTube hasn’t opened this yet to everyone but is currently testing it with some users which means we might be close to seeing YouTube livestreaming for everyone soon.
As with Facebook and Twitter, accessing the livestream feature on YouTube is pretty simple. Tap on the upload button and there you’ll see the livestream button. Click on it and then set a thumbnail and title and that’s it.
Facebook and Twitter are both cashing in on its livestream features being used by individuals and corporations alike and maybe this played a role in YouTube’s decision too. Facebook even took it a step further by launching its 360 degree video livestream globally which means if you have the right camera, you’re good to go.
