The new feature makes the live streams more interactive, the company said in a blogpost
‘Live Q&A‘ is the new feature rolled out by YouTube to allow live streamers to interact with the viewers, the company said in a blog post. With ‘Live Q&A’, users can easily build a community while responding to a number of important questions asked by their viewers.
The feature allows users to create and manage Q&A sessions in the live chat during their streams and premieres by using the ‘Live Control Room‘ (LCR).
The questions submitted by the new feature are managed by the same systems that allow users to moderate live chat. It means that the users can block words, hold them for review, and report questions.
The new feature is present alongside ‘Live Polls‘, another way for the users to interact with their live stream viewers.
Users with ‘Manager’ or ‘Editor’ channel permissions will be able to manage the questions list which includes, “viewing the questions list, selecting questions to answer, removing questions from the list”, and much more. ‘Moderators’ are not allowed to manage questions in Live Q&As.
The earlier questions submitted are displayed at the top of the chronological list of questions, the platform said. There is no limit to the number of questions, however, the oldest ones on the list will disappear after 200 questions.
