Report: “YouTube Connect” will be a livestreaming Periscope competitor


VentureBeat  has the scoop on another YouTube service: YouTube Connect. Connect would be a livestreaming service which would take on “spur-of-the-moment” live video services like Facebook Live and Twitter’s Periscope. The report says the service would include apps on Android and iOS with “much of the same functionality” as Periscope and Facebook Live. Streaming would be immediate and paired with chat and “tagging” features.

There is also the umbrella subscription service YouTube Red. Read 3 remaining paragraphs | Comments
