YouTube Now Has Live Streaming by barbies beauty bits

Video is all the rage right now and going live is the biggest trend on Social Media! With Facebook Live, Snapchat, and Instagram stories, this approach has proven to be a successful add to those social media platforms! And this is why Youtube has decided to jump on this bandwagon as well, and it’s about time.  Honestly, I would have thought this is something they would have done long ago, but it is now available through your YouTube Mobile App. But unfortunately not to everyone.  That’s right. Currently, it is only available to people with 10,000 plus subscribers, bummer I know, but I did read in a blog post that the feature would soon be available to everyone.

  • Once your channel is enabled, you have two options to start your live stream:
  • Option 1: "Stream now" is a quick and easy way to go live. Start sending content and YouTube will automatically start and stop the stream for you at the right time.

  • You have the option to take a picture and use it as the cover of your live video.
  • Now you are ready to record.
  • Once you’re complete, the live broadcast video will automatically be added to your playlist; privacy options do apply to these as well.
