YouTube has announced that users will soon be able to live stream directly from their smartphone’s Camera app, making the process simpler than ever. In a blog post, the company revealed they are working with Asus, LG, Motorola, Nokia, and Samsung to begin with, and the feature should start rolling out in the coming months.

“Our goal is to bring this feature to even more device manufacturers throughout the year through the new YouTube Mobile Live deep link.”
