The largest Video streaming app, YouTube may soon drop the 1,000 subscribers requirement limit placed on its mobile live streaming service. but there’s a clause..
Prior to this announcement, the live streaming feature on YouTube was only available to users with over 10,000 subscribers or more, making it very difficult for upcoming content creators
However in April, the company thought it wise to make it a little more easier, thereby dropping the requirement to 1,000, even at this, it still wasn’t that accessible to most content creators which means without your channel having that much subscribers, the service was a no go area for you.
Although there have been reports that some users are now allowed to access the live streaming service, but Google is yet to make any official announcement to that effect
If the reports is anything to go with, it means users no longer need to worry about that much subscribers, but to use the live stream feature on YouTube, you must have been verified, and confirmed not to have gone against any of the rules
In other words, your YouTube account must have been verified and devoid of any live stream restrictions in the last 90 days
