YouTube Copies Twitch and Launches New Features For Streamers
YouTube has decided to add features so that streamers can interact more closely live with their subscribers, with some features made famous by Twitch.
According to Xataka, the first new tool consists of having the possibility of enabling a subscribers-only chat in live broadcasts or premieres.
However, it can also limit the chat to stop receiving spam messages from subscribers. In order to participate in the comments area, the audience will have to have a VPN. In this way, they will be able to receive a notification of when the chat is activated and how long they will be able to participate.
YouTube's second feature allows content creators to create polls during streams, so subscribers can participate in real time and see the results in chat once the poll is complete.Finally, the video website has launched the 'Clips' option for streamers, where they can select a part of their transmissions and be able to share them on other platforms.
