Youtube Vloggers can Live Stream if you 1000 subscribers!!!

Where are my vloggers? Youtube has lowered the requirement for channels to live stream to 1,000 subscribers.

As Google stated in its guide to live-streaming, channel owners only need to verify their channel — once approved, you can either start a live stream from Creator Studio or the YouTube mobile app.

While YouTube users could go live from a number of platforms, including Facebook and Periscope, sticking to the YouTube app with its Super Chat feature, will let  creators moneytize their streams. With Super Chat, viewers pay to pin their comment to the top of the live chat window. The amount they pay affects how long their comment stays pinned and how it’s highlighted. 

Google explains the three ways you can start a live stream:

Stream now is a quick and easy way to go live. Start sending content and we'll automatically start and stop the stream for you at the right time.
Events gives you greater control of the live stream. You can preview before you go live, you have backup redundancy streams, and you can start and stop the stream when you want.
Mobile lets you stream from the main YouTube app. After a mobile live stream ends, an archive of the stream is saved to your channel and you have the option to edit the privacy setting (including setting it to private) or delete the archive.
