YouTube is finally rolling out live streaming for all verified creators in “good standing.” Previously, YouTube had opened up live stream options for select creators who registered for the functionality. However, live stream was not open to every channel until now.
Unsurprisingly, YouTube is also using this opportunity to promote new Google+ integrated features. Now, using the YouTube Live events manager, creators can access Google+ Hangout on Air, which launches a live Hangout via a channel page.
Live stream for all channels will roll out over the next few weeks, according to YouTube.
