Hold the phone! This news is hot–and a huge game changer. YouTube just announced that creators will be able to co-stream live videos with creators on TikTok and Twitch. It’s called Go Live Together, and YouTube is launching it over the next few weeks!

What’s Included With Go Live Together

This addition to YouTube’s live isn’t the first time we’ve seen this, but it’s a huge step forward for the company. Go Live Together is similar to Twitch’s ‘guest stars and TikTok’s multi-guest options. In a blog post, YouTube outlines the specifics of what’s included in this new feature available to creators in the coming weeks.

Once co-streaming launches, creators can live stream with another creator, but it will only be available via mobile phone first. That brings up another point of interest for users.

Go Live Together will only be available to a small group of creators at first, then the feature will be expanded. Social media writer Aisha Malik reports on the specifics of how creators can launch the co-stream.

“Creators need to start by entering their stream details, including the title, description, monetization settings, thumbnails and visibility settings. After selecting the “Invite a co-streamer” option, creators will be able to choose a guest to invite to their Livestream,” Tech Crunch reports.

Additionally, Nicole Farley touches on the differences between this Livestream. “On Twitch and TikTok, co-hosting supports up to five guests, but with Go Live Together, only one guest can join,” she reports.

Que The Ads

With advertisements being at the forefront these days, it’s no surprise that co-hosted streams can run ads. This is a great addition to this feature since it allows creators another option for monetization. But there is a slight downside to it.

Only the host will receive revenue from the ads running, not the guest.

Another noteworthy feature is that the stream will only appear on the host’s channel and not the guest’s. YouTube’s statement on the matter reflects its acknowledgement that stream visibility on both channels is important. It may be something the company looks into shortly.

Google Crawling Happening Outside the U.S

11/25/2022

Do you live outside of the U.S. and wish that Google would crawl your site’s pages? Well, your wish has just come true, kind of. This is all news to us too but this surprise started with an announcement by a Google representative.

Where Is Google Crawling Then?

Search Engine Roundtable reports that a Google representative named Gary Illyes announced that Googlebot could now crawl outside of the United States. Googlebot is the title used to refer to Google’s web crawler which is used on desktop sites and mobile sites.

Illyes states that the “system to handle this is currently live but may not be used in all cases or it may not be used at all for your site,” Search Engine Roundtable reports. However, after he read reports stating that he had made claims crawling was currently happening outside of the United States, he clarifies his claim.

Especially, since in the past Google has said that crawling outside the United States wouldn’t prove to be as useful as one would think. That can be seen in the video hangout just below.

Gary Illyes says that he was discussing Google’s crawling abilities outside of the Unites States. Specifically, in reference to the IP block that have been assigned to countries which could be used in the future for crawling externally.

Twitter Chatter

Others have spoken on the matter of Googlebot crawling outside of the United States. Webmaster and Google Products Expert Kenichi Suzuki took to Twitter to explain the claim. Here’s what he had to say about the matter.

For now it seems like Googlebot is going to stay crawling in the Unites States and external crawling might be tabled for now. Keep an eye on Twitter feeds and Webmaster world for more word in the future!
