YouTube is currently the top video streaming platform each month, with billions of views, especially popular names. Striving to incorporate new features, the platform is reportedly testing a new subscription feature.

YouTube, which has hosted the most watched videos and productions over the years, announced that it has launched a beta test for subscriber-only chat. With this feature, creators will be able to create live streams and chats just for their subscribers.

NEW FEATURES WILL BE ADDED IN THE FOLLOWING DAYS

This feature allows creators to connect with their subscribers and create a better communication network. This was a much needed feature because sometimes during live streams and chats the comments section can contain really ugly content messages.

The new feature tested is also familiar from Twitch. Creators hosting live streams can also control which subscribers can join their live streams. It means it can only allow a certain audience depending on how long they have subscribed to the channel.
