YouTube has rolled out a new update to its new YouTube Gaming application enabling sponsorships and mobile lifestream capturing.
The latest YouTube gaming update enables Fan Funding and Sponsorships, to a small group of creators Google currently beta tests the service before rolling it out further afield.
For a monthly payment, sponsors receive extra perks that take the form of a live chat badge chosen by the creator and access to exclusive chat sessions. Google explains more about the new Mobile Capture feature :
Every day, games are played while waiting for the bus, riding the subway, or lounging on the couch—but what about live streaming your mobile gameplay? You heard it from us at the Tokyo Game Show and now it’s here to stay. You can now record and live stream mobile gameplay on-the-go directly from Android devices using Mobile Capture on YouTube Gaming.
You don’t need any additional hardware or software—just tap Go Live (or your avatar on a phone) in the YouTube Gaming app, turn on your selfie cam and record your commentary with your phone’s microphone.
