YouTube has announced that smartphone users will soon be able to start a new live stream directly from the camera app of their smartphones.

Speaking to Bloomberg, YouTube music lead Lyor Cohen describes how the company will convert free subscribers into paying ones with the latest iteration of its subscription service.

YouTube has been criticized for their current ad-supported business model, which is seen by many as detrimental to the music industry because of low payouts.

With YouTube Gaming being a direct competitor to common broadcasting services such as Twitch, Google is definitely trying to make it easier for users to livestream content on its platform.

"There's a lot more people in our funnel that we can frustrate and seduce to become subscribers", he said.

This is significant expansion, in terms of reaching potential YouTube advertisers who would have otherwise not had the resources to write, film and edit a professional ad for YouTube.

About 33 percent of small businesses lack the means to create a video ad, thus deterring them from advertising digitally, a Lucid Research report said.

Instead, it will ultimately push users to seek other services, or jump on Spotify 'Freemium.' The company's new music service will end up joining the ranks of Play Music and YouTube Red, both of which are all-but-forgotten. "Everyone is drunk on the growth of subscription".

YouTube will ban videos that promote or link to websites selling firearms and accessories, including bump stocks, which allow a semi-automatic rifle to fire as faster, Bloomberg reported. A company using the service is only charged when the ads are engaged. Google hasn't confirmed this though, so it's best to remain skeptical. "We feel strongly that after they get done going after guns, they'll continue to ban and erase content that falls in line with conservative ideologies like they have already demonstrated with the deletion of anti-abortion videos and the like".
