YouTube’s ‘Go Live Together’ feature which allows uses to have a co-hosting feature during live streams is now available on the YouTube mobile app in both iOS and Android, meaning you can now host a live stream with more than one creator.
YouTube’s feature enables creators with 50 or more subscribers to invite a guest to livestream with them, with one guest able to be hosted at any given time, with guests being rotated during the same livestream, and they do not need to have the same 50 subscriber requirement, meaning any YouTube creator can join in.
YouTube made the official announcement on Thursday, via their Twitter page.
Currently, the ‘Go Live Together’ feature is currently limited to the YouTube mobile app and is not available to desktop users, however creators can schedule a co-stream on the desktop version of YouTube.
It is important to note that while you can schedule a co-stream on the desktop version of YouTube, both host and guest will need to connect to the scheduled stream through the YouTube app on a mobile device as the company continues to explore adding desktop support in the future.
