At YouTube's VidCon Keynote, they detailed that one of the updates coming, if not already available, will allow anyone with 100 Subscribers to use the YouTube LIVE feature.
Another feature that is being unlocked for users not locked into a contract with a big network and limiting the things that networks can offer partnered channels as exclusive features.
Rajaraman explained that “The hallmark of YouTube’s always been authenticity” and live, unscripted content is a great way for authenticity to shine though. For this reason, any user with over 100 subscribers will now be able to take advantage of YouTube’s Live platform.
Do you have 100 Subscribers? Will you start using the LIVE Stream feature on YouTube now that you can use it without being partnered?
