YouTube for iPhone and iPad updated with support for live events

YouTube for iPhone and iPad has been updated with a new features and enhancements, including support for live events. Events like Coachella have often been streamed live on YouTube in the past, but users could not view them on iOS devices. iOS users can now view live events through the app, and YouTube has added a feed called “Live” to the “From YouTube” section of the guide which lists the live events that are currently available.

Additionally, users can now quickly access just the new videos from their subscriptions through the “My subscriptions” section in the channel guide. Additionally, channels that use the “One Channel” branding on YouTube will now have a specialized header for their feed in the iPhone and iPad app. People using the “Send to TV” feature can now queue videos in a playlist. Finally, the update also has the usual performance enhancements and bug fixes.

What do you think of the update? Are you excited to be able to watch live streams on your iPhone and iPad?
