YouTube Go Live Together

Stream With Other Content Creators

Rumours suggest that YouTube is working on a new live-streaming feature that will allow multiple content creators to stream together in the same interface. This is a popular feature amongst Twitch and TikTok streamers, who have a similar feature already available on their individual platforms, which offers a similar, if not better, experience.


YouTube is calling this feature 'Go Live Together', and so far, it seems that it will allow at least two creators to stream together from their mobile devices. They might bring out a desktop version at a later time, but for now, testing is being conducted for a mobile-only feature, which will allow users to schedule a livestream with a guest through their desktop app, and then join them live via a smartphone or tablet.

While the limit of users that can stream simultaneously is set to two, you can still rotate out guests present in a waiting room for a more diverse streaming experience. This limitation is not present on Twitch or TikTok, which let up to five people stream in a grid-style video layout. Even within this limited sharing feature, guest creators won't get any share of the revenue but will still be able to include personal advertisements.

The streaming process has been kept pretty straightforward, with a simple and familiar starting page where you can enter various stream details, such as the stream title, description, and thumbnail, as well as visibility and monetization settings. Once all that is done, you can then select a new 'Invite a Co-Streamer' option, which will give you a list of all your creator's friends to pick from.

You can select multiple people and send them individual invites with personal messages. They have to accept the invite to be sent to a waiting room, where you can add them to the live feed. When both of you are ready to go ahead with the stream, the host will then make it public through a “Go Live” button. All of this will be found under a new 'Go Live Together' button that will be added to your channel interface.

Another thing to keep in mind is that despite streaming together, the stream will only be visible on the host channel, so make sure you pick your roles accordingly. Hopefully, YouTube will be able to remove these limitations in a future update as the concept of multi-creator streaming becomes more popular on the platform. For now, we don't even have a release date for the actual feature, much less the update. So, stay tuned as we keep tracking the progress of this exciting piece of tech gossip.
