How to Enable Live Streaming

Now that Live Streaming is eligible for monetization, you might find yourself interested in using this feature. Before you attempt to enable Live Streaming, you will first want to confirm that your channel is verified and that you have no live stream restrictions in the last 90 days.  If you do not meet these requirements, you will be unable to enable this feature.

To enable this feature:

Navigate to your features page by either visiting, or by navigating to the Status & Features option under the Channel tab on your YouTube Dashboard side-bar.  From here, you will see a list of your enabled and disabled features, including the Live Streaming feature. Simply click the "Enable" button at the bottom, and you will now have the ability to live stream to your viewers!
