Sony mobile has introduced a new Xperia camera app exclusively for its Xperia Z2 users. The app is called “Live on YouTube – by Xperia” through which the users can stream live video of an event directly to YouTube from their Xperia Z2 handset.
Xperia Z2 owners can share their live moments like a wedding or a party with their near and dear ones. Even amateur reporters or directors who want to try their hand at reporting or directing can record a short video of up to maximum 15 minutes through the Xperia Z2 camera and stream it directly to YouTube at the click of a button. There is an option to share the live video publicly with everyone or privately with family and friends.
To use this Live on YouTube camera app, users need to have a verified YouTube account with good standing. Also, users are warned not to stream any inappropriate or copyrighted content. The “live broadcast feature” in the YouTube account must be turned on before live streaming can be done. The feature can be turned on from https://www.youtube.com/features.
Interested users can download this app directly to their Xperia Z2 handsets from Google Play or they can download the apk file from here. The Live on YouTube app is not available in some countries including Germany where live streaming from YouTube is not enabled. Sony has not clarified whether the app will be available for its other Xperia models.
