YouTube live stream available to all channels

All verified YouTube channels will now be able to stream live video from their channel after YouTube announced that the feature has become accessible to all channels that are in ‘good standing’.

For the last year, the feature has only been accessible to certain YouTubers, but it has finally become accessible to all creators and could put YouTube into competition with the likes of Twitch, YouNow and UStream.

Furthermore, as part of YouTube’s Google+ makeover, the streaming service enables you to encourage Google Hangouts as part of the stream to interact with your subscribers.

The Google+ Hangout on Air can be set up from the new Live Events option in the Video Manager section of your YouTube account.

You can find out more about how to get the most out of producing live content by looking at YouTube’s Live playbook.
