YouTube recently announced that users will soon be able to go live stream directly from their camera app of select Android devices, making it easier to Go-Live and interact with the community.
According to the official blog, the company has announced that they will be partnering with few mobile brands to enable Live Stream feature directly.
“In the coming months, you’ll be able to start a live stream directly from the camera app in select devices from Asus, LG, Motorola, Nokia, and Samsung. Our goal is to bring this feature to even more device manufacturers throughout the year through the new YouTube Mobile Live deep link.” – Company said
Now YouTube Live Streaming via laptops and desktops is also easy than ever. If someone has streamed live on Youtube in past, they will understand the efforts that go through this complicated process using a third party software/encoder.
“We’re making the process as easy as a couple of clicks. Just head over to youtube.com/webcam or click on “Go live” in the YouTube header to start your stream.”

This will make the whole process of Youtube Live Streaming from computers a lot easier and quicker. This will eventually promote more Live Streaming on the platform and allow users to use the functionality to full capacity.
The new feature is currently compatible only with Google Chrome browser, but will soon be expanded to other browsers.
