Open the regular YouTube app and then at the bottom you’re going to see a plus.
Click that, then go live together.
If you don’t see that,
it’s because it’s in beta and it might not have rolled out to you yet.
Fill out all the stream details, the title, the description, all of the things.
Take a pretty thumbnail, make sure it’s pretty click done and then you’re going to see the invite a co-streamer option.
Copy that link and text it to them.
Something, some way that they have access to on their phone.
You can add them before the show gets started, then go live and enjoy the conversation.
Since this is currently still in beta, they have not posted channel requirements in order to get access to this feature.
Check the description to see if that has been updated.
And you can rotate through guests.
So you can only have one person on screen at the same time, for obvious reasons.
Elephant in the room?
Yes, YouTube is the last platform to actually release this type of feature.
YouTube is traditionally focused on high quality content.
That’s what’s worked on this platform.
But as time goes on and things shift, short form content has become such a massive need in the marketplace.
Now they’re focusing on shorts, which opens up the opportunity for raw live streaming to actually potentially perform on your channel.
We will see what that strategy looks like as time goes on and more people are able to actually use this.
So stay tuned for more information as we discover how it’s going to perform for you.
I have to say I’m a little skeptical, but time will tell.
So how do you think you’ll use this feature?
