YouTube continues to expand its horizons by testing new engaging live tools / Digital Information World

YouTube has never ceased to amaze its users and is always looking for new ways to entertain its users, this may be the cause of YouTube being the 2nd most visited search engine, just after Google. To maintain user interest, YouTube recently announced new updates for YouTube Live feature. These features include better viewing options and also give users the ability to invite guests into their live streams.

YouTube’s live streaming option, which allows the user to invite a guest, is most likely similar to live streaming options in other apps. According to Creator Insider, they plan to release a trial update under the name “Go live together” feature. With this update, the user will have the advantage of inviting a guest even before going live by simply sending a specific link to the guest. But the guest channel information will remain hidden. When it comes to why live streams are a host-planned interactive event, it can get pretty daunting at times. Thus, by inviting a guest, the host may feel less burdened on his shoulders. It was a highly requested feature and in response to user requests, YouTube finally announced that it was testing this update.

Another feature that YouTube has promised to offer is live ringtones which are usually an indicator to users if a channel is live streaming, again this feature is exactly similar to the live ringtones seen in TikTok and Instagram. Users have observed that YouTube is inspired by the popular TikTok app. In the beginning, YouTube introduced shorts, a feature that allows the user to watch short videos was undoubtedly an inspiration from TikTok and now, by introducing live rings, YouTube somehow confirms the claims of its users.

Another update allegedly offered by YouTube concerns live redirects across multiple channels. It was a recurring problem for many content creators not being able to redirect their audience to another premiere or a different channel’s live stream. But with this valuable update, content creators will be able to redirect their respective audience to other premieres and live streams on different channels. Thanks to this feature, promotional partnerships will be significantly improved.
Another update that YouTube will be rolling out in a few months is the live Q&A feature, where viewers will have the option to ask their questions in a live stream.

YouTube is becoming a great hookup platform for users, thanks to its excellent community support forum and product managers. And by introducing these features, YouTube will surely pick up its pace. And if it persists in introducing such amazing updates, YouTube will undoubtedly become the most successful app in a short period of time.
