Google has quietly been building a new livestreaming app called YouTube Connect. YouTube Connect will be available on both iOS and Android devices.
YouTube Connect has much of the same functionality that you’d already find with Periscope and Facebook Live. There are chat and tagging features, and a “news feed” that features the latest clips from your friends or those that you’ve subscribed to on YouTube.
Videos will be view-able live within the app, as well as on the YouTube site in their respective channels and now can be streamed to DAM’s Ad Servers anyplace in the world. It will also be possible to store previous broadcasts in the app, quite possibly as something you can opt into after you’ve completed the live stream. This will make it possible for you and your friends to watch the replays or to replay them on the Ad Servers in the future.
Here is a demo of LIVE African Safari. Twice a day our expert guides invite you to come along and drive through the African bush in search of the Big Five as well as smaller animals.
