It seems YouTube is making its mobile live streaming feature more and more available to all users by reducing the number of subscribers needed for one to enjoy access to the functionality. But Google is making it clear that it still is not made available to everybody. Officially, YouTube mobile live streaming can only be accessed by a limited number of account holders for now.
Some may remember that back in February earlier this year, YouTube had started to allow users to directly live stream to their channel from their mobile devices. That capability, however, had only been made available to people with at least 10,000 subscribers. Well, here is some good news -- the world’s most popular source of video content has since reduced the requirement to just 1,000 subscribers.
During this year’s VidCon (an event focusing on the online video market) held in the city of Anaheim, California, YouTube took the opportunity to reveal that it has added a live streaming feature to its mobile app. It appears that live streaming features have become the rage right now, with Facebook touting its Live feature while Twitter has its Periscope, and YouTube would do well to join in on the program.
John Legere, the chief executive officer of T-Mobile, may be one of the most outspoken head honchos of any corporate out there, but he sure knows when to say sorry when out of line. Indeed, in light of the recent bad publicity with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Legere is issuing an apology to the organization for his offensive remarks he made a week ago.
Mobile users do not have a problem with the Binge On service, at least according to John Legere, the outspoken chief executive officer of T-Mobile, who continues to defend the video streaming feature it introduced nearly a couple of months ago.
Many may have already heard about T-Mobile’s Binge On feature. This service basically allows qualified subscribers of the third biggest wireless carrier in America to to stream video content from a limited list of services, which include Netflix, HBO, and Hulu, just to name a few, without it affecting their data allotments.
Recently, the third biggest wireless carrier in America has adopted a practice of downgrading the quality of video content to 480p in order to minimize the usage of data. But not all are happy -- especially YouTube, the Google owned website that is considered by many to be the most frequently visited source of video content on the Internet.
