Joint Live Broadcast feature for YouTube: How to Use?


YouTube mentioned that it would bring the “Collaborative Live Streaming” feature late last year. However, there has been no progress on this issue since then. One of YouTube's official Twitter accounts announced that they have brought the Joint Live Broadcast feature with a post he shared yesterday. So, what are the details of the innovation and how is it used? Let's take a look at the details of the news together.


Requires 50 subscribers to use YouTube Collaborative Live Streaming feature

According to the tweet shared from the TeamYouTube Twitter account, YouTube brings the Joint Live Broadcast feature on smartphones. This feature, as the name suggests, will allow the two channels to broadcast live together.

To open these live broadcasts where everyone can be a guest, channel owners must have at least 50 subscribers. Channel owners will be able to view analytics in YouTube Studio after the live broadcast. People who are guests of the broadcast, of course, will not be able to access this data.

The innovation is currently being tested with several creators. It will be available to more creators soon, according to the post cited by YouTube Help. You can follow the steps below in order to make a Joint Live Broadcast on YouTube:

  • Sign in to the YouTube app
  • Click the Create + tab at the bottom
  • Tap the “Collaborative Livestream” button on the Create+ tab
  • Specify the details for the broadcast, such as the title, description, which will be viewed by guests.
  • Tap the “Done” button
  • Tap the “invite co-streamer” tab for the person who will be the guest of the live broadcast. Copy the link from here or send the invite link to the partner publisher.
  • After the live broadcast guest arrives, tap the "Start Live Broadcast" tab.
