YouTube adds live streaming to iOS app
Now you can watch live feeds of news, sports, concerts, and more, right on your iPhone or iPad.
If you were hoping to watch last weekend's Coachella concert on your iDevice, you just missed your chance: although, the iOS YouTube app doesn't support live streaming.
It does now. (Cruel timing, Google!) YouTube 1.3 for iOS, released today, adds a handful of new features and fixes, not the least of which is access to live streams.
For those unaware, YouTube offers a variety of live content, everything from concerts (natch) to news and sports.
The iOS streaming feature joins a, which ostensibly would let you watch YouTube-hosted live events on your big screen. What's more, the app now lets you queue up videos expressly for TV viewing.
Also new in this update: quick access to new uploads via the My Subscriptions feed on the Guide, and "One Channel branding for video creator channels."
What are your thoughts on live-streaming from YouTube via your iPhone, iPod, or iPad? Think it's something you'll check out, especially when a high-profile concert is in the offing?
