What is YouTube Mobile Live Streaming?
I am sure, we all know what is live streaming. Going live on YouTube is YouTube live streaming and it is a un-edited video. Viewers can chat live in such live streams and can interact with YouTuber.

But here comes the catch!

It’s a launch that’ll put the power of live streaming in the hands of hundreds of thousands of talented creators, giving them a more intimate and spontaneous way to share their thoughts, lives, and creativity.
Is It Possible To Get Mobile Live Streaming for Subscriber Less Than 10K?
The answer to the above question is YES.
Yes, it is possible to get mobile live stream enable for less subscriber. We are not faking. One of the YouTube channel has got mobile live streaming facility with just 2K subscribers.
Below are some of the videos you can check. The first video is aired live from mobile. There are many other live streamed videos on Technical GupShup channel which is done through mobile.
I am not sure how that channel got a YouTube live stream for mobile so early with so less subscriber and even they also don’t know that. 🙂
It looks like this YouTube channel use to live stream a lot from desktop, so YouTube enable that feature for even mobile seeing their live stream history.
I am sure, till now you must have watched above videos and now you believe me that getting YouTube mobile live stream is possible with less subscribers also. If you are one of the channel which has also got this live streaming feature do let us know through your comments.
