  • YouTube Live isn’t the same as a Hangouts on Air. Compare the different features of “Quick” versus “Custom” live event types (Quick is Hangouts on Air, Custom is YouTube Live).
  • While streaming, make sure you’re on a reliable network! Broken network = a broken stream. Learn more about Network Tips.
  • It’s a great idea to promote your event at least 48 hours ahead of time. Learn more about promoting your event.
