As the name might suggest, it is essentially a Meerkat or Periscope-like service that lets you broadcast your videos. Unlike the aforementioned apps though, this feature is built in to the new smartphones camera app, and lets you broadcast via YouTube.

To build this feature, Samsung has partnered Google, and both teams have closely worked to offer seamless streaming experience. This app also allows users to either schedule streams or push them live immediately. The Live Broadcast app supports streaming of 1080p videos at 60fps. The live stream from Samsung s latest phablets can be viewed on any smartphone, smart TV, tablet or a web browser that can view YouTube videos.
This is however not the first time a company is offering such a feature on its smartphones. Sony introduced a similar feature on the Xperia Z2. The feature called Live on YouTube essentially let users broadcast up to 15 minutes of video direct to their YouTube channel.
