YouTube Mobile Live-Streaming Coming Soon


YouTube has announced that its very own live-streaming feature is coming to the mobile app and will be accessible to all users very soon. With this feature, users will be able to broadcast live video from their mobile devices by just hitting a button.

The announcement was made at VidCon where the company showcased a quick demo of how the feature works. The interface looks very alike to Periscope which comprises viewer comments scrolling up the screen in speech bubbles. The live broadcast interface also comprises a viewer count, a like count, and a button to switch between the front and rear cameras. You can also take a photo before you begin your live stream to add it as a banner for your broadcast.
