Youtube imposed new restrictions on users: "To be able to live stream on mobile, your channel will need to have at least 1,000 subscribers."
Why Youtube did that? What is the reason to limit creators that are using mobile devices?

Can people with less than 1000 subscribers go live on an iPad? Thanks.

Terrible new policy. I really enjoyed live streaming from my small channel and interacting with my subscribers.  I am now looking for other options.

This is unfair policy for us small youtubers. I usually rely on my mobile phone to interact with my subscribers and greet them live.

Very disappointing to change policies. I was live streaming soccer games for families of high school players who live out of town and out of state, and after live streaming for half the season, YouTube changed the rules to disallow it.

Lot of people are disappointed with YouTube as a result of this type of midstream decision. Very disappointing.

This new policy is horrible. I use mobile live-streaming literally for my sons baseball games and no longer can do that.

Fuck all yaw. You just make it worse. You would rather upset people who are just starting their channel. There is zero, ZERO REASON TO IMPOSE THIS. Madders in fact why don't you just do the same for computer right. Yeah because I'm going to buy a 2000 dollar laptop so I can suit your policy. And thank you I wanted to do this. Because we all know that your trash and you know what your doing and you do it anyways. You sell us out like you do small business. You favor there people who have been posting longer than us. But you won't change this because you have all the power. And you think you can just do whatever you want without thinking. And it's bullshit. So here's the hath reality. We are all pretty much saying FUCK YOU in the kindest way possible.
