Live Streaming Arrives at YouTube
Verified YouTube channels are now able to live stream videos to the world, thanks to a new update from Google.
The streaming feature will be rolled out over the next few weeks. In addition, users can launch a Google+ Hangout on Air directly from the YouTube Live events manager, which provides brands with a way to invite participants to watch shows.
It is important to note that this feature will only be made available to verified channels in “good standing,” which means that the channel must have no Community Guidelines strikes, copyright strikes and no videos that have been blocked worldwide by Content ID. Moreover, the streaming feature can be accessed on the YouTube account feature page, and will also eventually appear as “Live Events” in the video manager.
