youtube_live_iosYouTube live streaming has been a feature available on the platform for a while now, although it was more recently that the ability for users to view live streams from their mobile devices was introduced. However the ability to create a live stream was a feature that has escaped the iOS and Android version of the app, but not anymore.

The company has announced that starting from today, mobile users will be able to live stream directly from their iOS devices. This will not require users to download a separate app or use another service as the live streaming capabilities will be baked into the YouTube app itself, and all users have to do is press the button and they’re good to go.

According to YouTube, “YouTube mobile live streaming will be baked right into the core YouTube mobile app. You won’t need to open anything else, just hit the big red capture button right there in the corner, take or select a photo to use as a thumbnail, and you can broadcast live to your fans and chat in near real time.”

In addition and since it is baked into the app, users will be able to expect the usual features from the app, such as searching for videos, recommendations, playlists, and so on. The update should be like so do check it out and update your app if you haven’t done so already.
