There are reports that Google is building a new live streaming app called YouTube Connect. Right now, live streaming is available on YouTube, only to users who have a credible verified channel. This is available via an app called Creator Studio. Live streaming has become very popular. Twitter’s Periscope has very recently released numbers; 200 million broadcasts in a day. Twitter has also integrated live streaming in its tweets. Facebook Live has been getting good numbers too. Google’s move will be crucial as YouTube already is the leader in video streaming traffic.
