Restrictions on live streaming

We’ve recently raised the threshold for YouTube Live with a mobile device. To be able to live stream on mobile, your channel will need to have at least 1,000 subscribers. 

Note that this eligibility threshold does not apply to other live streaming tools. Creators who have less than 1,000 subscribers will still be able to live stream through desktop and webcam

Your channel's live streaming ability will be automatically disabled for any of the following reasons:

In addition, for channels that have a significant number of videos with features disabled, live streaming functionality may also be disabled. You can check to see if your channel has any strikes, and check whether your currently have access to live streaming here.

If your account has been restricted from live streaming, you are prohibited from using another channel to live stream on YouTube. This applies for as long as the restriction remains active on your account. Violation of this restriction is considered circumvention under our Terms of Service and may result in termination of your account. If you suggest that you will live stream content that violates our Community Guidelines, we may age-restrict or remove your live stream.

As a reminder - Advertiser Friendly Guidelines and Restrictions on Paid product placements and endorsements apply to live stream too.
