Watching other people play video games has actually become pretty big these days, with the streamers becoming actual celebrities and making a lot of money. It is pretty hard to become successful in this business, but who knows – you might be the next big streamer if you are good enough at Garena Free Fire.
In this guide, we would list out some of the most effective methods to answer the question “How To Live Stream Free Fire On YouTube?”. To start streaming, you might need one of the better phones and a good internet connection, as streaming in parallel with gaming might cause lags and performance dipping, which in turn would affect your gameplay experience.
1 – How To Live Stream Free Fire On YouTube Using Phone
In the past, you can stream Free Fire straight from your phone with YouTube gaming, however, after Google updated the Android app last year, it is not as easy to stream anymore. YouTube Gaming was integrated into the main YouTube app, allowing gamers to stream from their phone.
On the other hand, this has created a large entry barrier for aspiring creators. To stream on the platform using a phone, YouTube requires you to have at least 1000 subscribers. This is a rather harsh change, as 1000 subs is not a number a mobile content creator could be able to reach without the ability to stream. The reason behind this action is allegedly people streaming violent content like shootings in America.
If you have acquired 1000 subs somehow – below is a guide for getting started on streaming using the main YouTube application.
- Open the YouTube app.
- Tap the Capture (camera) icon next to the search button.
- Select Go Live.
- Allow access to your camera, microphone, location, then tap Create Channel.
- Select the phone icon in the top right corner
- Set up the title, description and privacy settings for the stream
- Set up the stream thumbnail and orientation for the screen
- Press Next to get to the final part, afterward, hit Go Live to start streaming.
