Enhanced Discoverability for Live Streams

The inclusion of live video previews within the Shorts feed expands the discovery options for users, providing them with easy access to live broadcasts while engaging with short-form content. While creators have long had the ability to livestream in vertical format, this enhancement aims to enhance discoverability by showcasing live broadcasts directly within the Shorts feed.

This approach mirrors the strategy adopted by TikTok, which has proven successful in driving engagement with live streaming. TikTok has made significant efforts to prioritise live streaming, drawing inspiration from its success in the Chinese market. While Western audiences have shown varying levels of interest in live streaming, integrating live broadcasts seamlessly into the content feed offers a non-disruptive way to encourage creators to experiment with this feature.
