YouTube targets live streamers and gaming with latest update

YouTube Users on iOS Can Now Live Stream Their Screens

Streamers can now enable ultra-low latency in their stream options, allowing them to stream video with a delay of only a few seconds. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki recently revealed that the service's improvements of its live streaming feature have resulted in viewing times for those streams quadrupling year-over-year.

So while the new ultra-low latency setting may not be appropriate for every live-streaming situation, YouTube says it will be particularly useful for creators who have lot of back and forth with their viewers. Considering that YouTube is the second largest streaming platform, Mixer should be anxious.

Streamers can also now quickly pause and review the chat feed mid-stream by holding the ALT/option key. And by simply opting in, streamers can now hold potentially inappropriate chat messages for review using the same technology that YouTube utilizes for traditional comments.

YouTube allows you to assign moderators to your channel that will be able to interact with the audience and remove comments, if necessary. People who are watching the live video through YouTube Live will be able to start conversation. It has also introduced hidden users list which can be directly shared between the moderators to review them out.

For messages that YouTube's system has held, you can select Show, which will display the relevant message in the chat stream at the time it was originally posted or the Hide option will keep the message hidden from viewers. If you are using an iOS device such as iPhone or iPad, you will be able to live stream apps directly from iOS device to YouTube Live.

YouTube's updates also include simpler streaming for iPhone and iPad users. This new feature can be helpful for streamers to live stream for mobile gaming tutorials wherein the person can use the front camera and mic to add their own audio-visual taste to the stream. Since most of the new features announced today are already available on Android, iOS users have the most to gain.
