New app, exclusively for Sony Xperia Z2, allows you to broadcast live via YouTube
A new camera app offered by Sony, and made exclusively for the flagship Sony Xperia Z2, allows users to broadcast live over YouTube. Called "Live on YouTube-by Xperia," the app gives you the option of allowing the whole world, or just friends and family, to view your live broadcast. You can use this feature wherever YouTube is available, except for Germany.

While the app turns anyone with the Sony Xperia Z2 into a television station, YouTube does warn users not to broadcast inappropriate activities or copyrighted material. There is no word when, or even if, the app will eventually be offered to other Xperia models.

If you're interested in giving others a peek in on your activities, you can find the apk at the sourcelink.

Nice Sony gotta try it. Hopefully it will have restrictions cause other insane people could just upload anything they want.
