YouTube Launches Pay-Enabled “Super Chats” In Live Streams, Shuts Off Crowdfunding Feature

Super Chats are clearly intended to help YouTube compete with Twitch, where a plentiful selection of perks are available for viewers who contribute bonus funds during any particular stream. The YouTube version of that feature is currently being rolled out on the channels of top creators like Cupquake, Great Library , and Wassabi Productions. It will be publicly available across 20 countries on January 31st. – Sam Gutelle, Tubefilter
