In 2016, YouTube rolled out mobile live streaming to the core app, allowing iOS users (and Android users) to stream to the social video network.
However, earlier this year mobile live streaming was essentially blockaded, so that only creators with 10,000 subscribers could use the functionality. That may have let some folks down, so YouTube has officially changed the rules. Beginning today, YouTube is rolling out mobile live streaming to all users.
The only requirements that a YouTube user needs to start live streaming is having an account that’s verified, and that does not have any livestream restrictions placed on their account. If those two things are met, users should not have any issues streaming content through the mobile app.
To get it to work, users need to head into the Upload section of the YouTube app, and then select the livestream option. You’ll be able to pick a thumbnail to show for the stream, as well as a title, and then start it up.
It’s worth noting that the feature is still rolling out for now, so if you haven’t had it pop up just yet, it should arrive soon enough.
