How to Bypass YouTube’s 1,000 Subscribers Requirement for Mobile Livestreaming

This article was updated on November 16th, 2020

Are you looking for How to Livestream on YouTube from Your Phone? But, not quite to 1000 subscriptions yet?

I found a super handy app for your Android and iOS device that lets you stream with any number of subscribers.

How to Go Live on YouTube Without 1000 Subscribers

This method involves live streaming whatever is on your screen, so you want to temporarily disable all notifications because you probably don't want your text messages to pop up while you're sharing your epic drone flight with the whole world.

You can have a chat box and / or alert box while streaming, which can come in handy so you don't have to switch between your app and your drone flight app.

Also note that your entire “DJI” interface will appear in your stream.

Quick Setup Guide

  1. Download Streamlabs for Android OR iOS.
  2. Log in to Streamlabs with YouTube. You will be prompted to login with your Google account associated with your YouTube Channel.
  3. Choose your YouTube account or a brand account to continue to Streamlabs
  4. Tap on ‘Allow' when Streamlabs wants to access your Google Account.
  5. You will be asked a series of questions during setup:
    1. Select: Screen OR Screen + Camera
    2. Widgets…
    3. Permissions
  6. Select ‘Start now'.
  7. Go live with the red button on YouTube!

Now you should see your screen and you can switch to Fortnite or any game OR app you want to broadcast. Be careful and silence anything you don't want to see in your livestream. Enjoy!
