To enable YouTube live on mobile devices, Google now requires that channels have at least 1,000 subscribers. The previous rule required 10,000 subscribers.
"All you have to do to start streaming is to open YouTube, hit the capture button and you're live! The streamed videos will have the same functionality as regular YouTube videos, "explains Google.
In addition to having "YouTube's solid infrastructure," YouTubers can apply special filters during broadcasts and interact with fans through Super Chat .
The live streaming option is available for verified channels and those that have no live streaming restrictions in the last 90 days.
