YouTube launches a new live feature for creators : Subscribers-Only
YouTube has launched a new mode, subscribers only which will allow creators to engage with their subscribers and host exclusive live chats.
The company gives chance to the creators to host live chats easily for more dedicated fan groups by creating a preimum vibe. This feature helps them to avoid any negative responses that usually happens during live streams targeted at a wider group of users.
This is how the creators can switch on to 'only subscribers mode' and are also allowed to choose how long the viewers need to be subscribed before they can send live chat messages. This setting can be changed before and during your live stream or Premiere.
"This feature is an experiment that’s only available to a small number of creators. We hope to let more creators participate in the future", explained by YouTube in a blogpost.
