Back in 2016, Google had launched world’s first 360-degree live streaming support with full 4k video, now starting on Tuesday, a new mobile live streaming feature to every creator on YouTube with more than 10,000 subscribers is begun rolling out. “Rest of you will have it soon!,” Google said.
With this launch the creators now have the ability to share their thoughts, lives, and creativity.
The new mobile live streaming is built directly into the YouTube mobile app and it can be started by just hitting the capture button to start streaming videos live —with all the same features as regualr YouTube video like: “can be found via search, recommendations or playlists, and protected from unauthorized use.”
Google notes to make mobile live streaming more faster, they’ve slow down live chat, which was at 2,000 messages per second and pushed for better streaming quality across devices.
Helping creators to earn from live streaming, a new “Super Chat” live stream monetization tool is launched as well and is available in more than 20 countries and to viewers in over 40 countries.
“Super Chat gives viewers a chance to add a little visual flair to chats and gives creators a new way to keep connected to their fans while earning a little money on the side,” like for example, while shopping at Target or playing video games, says Google.
A brand new Youtube channel tailored for Indian developers dubbed “Google Developers India channel,” launched today, include original content like interviews with local experts, developer spotlights, technical tutorials and even complete Android courses.
About this India specific launch, Google notes, that by 2018, the country will over 4 million developers —”largest developer base in the world.” So, naturally as part of this initiative, they want to train 2 million developers in the country.
