Google is building YouTube Connect, a livestreaming app to take on Periscope

YouTube Connect has much of the same functionality that you’d already find with Periscope and Facebook Live, according to a source close to the matter. You can log into the app using your Google or YouTube account and immediately begin streaming from your mobile phone. There are chat and tagging features, and a “news feed” that features the latest clips from your friends or those that you’ve subscribed to on YouTube. Videos will be viewable live within the app, as well as on the YouTube site in their respective channels. – Ken Yeung, VentureBeat
