YouTube Thursday announced the launch of Super Chat, a way for users to purchase highlighted mentions during livestreams in the hopes of attracting the attention of the Creators of those livestreams. Fan Funding allowed viewers to make voluntary donations to directly support creators. In addition, Super Chat messages remained pinned to the top of the page for up to 5 hours.
When someone goes live on YouTube, you'll see a cash symbol in the chat window. YouTube notes that Super Chats will be subject to moderation, with flagged chats possibly disappearing. The Super chats are also highlighted using a different colour. It enables them to get yet another income stream while still doing the same thing they've been doing for free. Make sure your device is on portrait mode and that you can see the live chat of course. The viewer can select an amount by dragging a slider to the desired value, then optionally enter a message and fire away.
To finish your purchase, follow the instructions. Users can make a purchase from YouTube or YouTube Gaming on a computer or in the Android app. iOS purchases are not now supported.
