Live streaming on YouTube has been a big promise of Google Stadia play since the day it was unveiled early 2019, but it’s now more than a year later launch and we still haven’t seen the functionality. Yesterday, however, 9to5Google noticed that streaming on YouTube seems to finally be rolling out and we have confirmed that the feature has appeared on the service.
Like any other YouTube video, you’ll need to confirm if the feed is kid-friendly, and set privacy settings and a few other options. You can also add optional features like Crowd Choice and Crowd Play. As for audio, you can stream YouTube and Game Chat, YouTube only, Party Chat only, and “Nobody”, with only game audio being played. You can also view the number of spectators at the top left of the screen.
