Live Streaming For Youtube Drops The 1000 Subscriber Requirement

According to a report from Android Police, YouTube will now allow users to live stream from the mobile app regardless of how many subscribers they have, although we guess if you have little to none then really, what's the point, right? Google, however, has disputed claims saying the new functionality is now available to all users, instead stating that only a subset of YouTube's users have access for the time being.

Google has made it pretty hard to live stream to YouTube, at least on mobile. The company previously dropped this subscriber-count requirement down to 1,000 from 10,000 in April. Now, all that stands in the way of starting a livestream is having a channel which is verified and not having any livestream restrictions on your account. Now, users with a subscriber base of any size can use the livestreaming feature. However, there are still a couple of requirements: the channel should be verified and should not have faced any live stream restrictions in the last 90 days. "We've been experimenting and expanding mobile live streaming for nearly a year now", the statement reads.

Celtics take Game 7 against Wizards
Otto Porter Jr . had a postseason career-high 20 points on 6-for-10 shooting and a ideal 8/8 from the charity stripe. Thomas finished second among Celtics players with a 21.0 nERD in Monday's victory, per numberFire Live.

YouTube introduced the Go Live service back in February this year, although it already offered the live-streaming feature in a limited capacity for nearly 6 years, beginning in 2011.

While livestreaming is an exciting step for YouTube users who want to reach their audience in real time, the platform is just now catching up to popular options like Twitter's Periscope or Facebook Live, which have been around for years. This means that the feature, which was introduced in early April, is now available to almost all registered users.
