A look at YouTube Live’s various menus.

Here at Tube Chum, we’re pretty impressed by Jogani’s concept. This app would certainly make browsing live-streams a whole lot easier and the idea of stumbling upon a creator for the first time is interesting. Similar streaming services such as Twitch and Ustream have their own apps already, so it’s nice to imagine YouTube getting the same treatment when it comes to broadcasting on the go.

The Discover page on YouTube Live makes it easier than ever for viewers to stumble upon streams that may be of interest to them, even if they’re being broadcast by YouTuber’s they’re not too familiar with. Users are notified when their favourite YouTubers start streaming, which means that missing out on the fun is a thing of the past.

Jogani rounds off his post by mentioning the potential of YouTube Live and streaming on the website in the future. He says: “There’s many potentially great use cases for mobile live streaming (breaking news, political activism, new form of vlogging, etc.) and there’s so much data left to be captured that it would be the perfect opportunity for Google (or Alphabet) to seize”.
