Now everyone can Go Live on YouTube without any subscribers, Android Police reports. That said, mobile live streaming's launch to all YouTube users appears imminent: the company has just renamed its mobile app on iOS from "YouTube - Watch, Upload and Share Videos" to "YouTube - Watch Videos, Music, and Live Clips".

This means that the feature, which was introduced in early April, is now available to almost all registered users.
