YouTube Live Streaming Opens To All Musicians

Youtube-live-eventsYouTube live streaming is opening up to all channels with verified accounts in good standing. Live streaming was introduced over the summer but initially required 5000 subscribers. In a related move further knitting together YouTube and Google+, you can now launch a Google+ Hangout from YouTube's Live Events manager. For smaller channels, this rollout will open up additional means of connecting more directly with fans.

Note that you must have a verified account and be in good standing for this to happen. So you'll need to attend to those matters first.

The YouTube Live Events manager will also now allow you to launch a Google+ Hangout On Air centralizing your live event management.
