YouTube Opens Live Mobile Streaming for Creators With 10K+ Subcribers

According to the new announcement, after a stream ends, former live videos will be recorded alongside the traditional YouTube videos, able to be searched for, added to the playlists, and protected from unauthorize use.
A New Feature Called 'Super Chat'
YouTube's live streams also come with the new feature "Super Chat" monetization tool, which allows viewers to pay for more outstanding messaging: "It lets any fan watching a live stream stand out from the crowd and get a creator's attention by purchasing chat messages that are highlighted in bright colors and stay pinned at the top of the chat window for up to five hours." according to a source. YouTube shared the following GIF, it shows how to start live streaming using the ''Capture" button already built into the YouTube app, and included an example of a "Super Chat" message which the chat highlighted with a green background.
