YouTube SuperChat Takes ‘Shout-Outs’ To A Whole New Level

Google announced a number of announcements to YouTube and ‘SuperChat’ at Google I/O, Google’s annual developer conference, which was kicked off on 17 May, 2017.

The company announced a new SuperChat API which will activate actions in the real world. This means that during a live stream, the viewers can pay money to trigger actions set up by creators, like turning off the studio lights where the YouTube creator is broadcasting the live stream from, flying a drone and other such actions.
