While those of us in the US are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Sony Xperia Z2 (a leak suggests a “special” version is being prepared for Verizon), Sony continues supporting the device with exclusive new applications. The latest is a Live on YouTube app which offers a handy feature not even the official YouTube provides, giving users the ability to broadcast a live streaming event straight from their Xperia device.
Somewhat of a handy tool for bloggers covering live events of some sort, we’re not entirely sure how useful this will be for the everyday-man. Still, you can never have too many options and we’re sure someone out there wouldn’t mind sharing their life with loved ones be it a concert or other event. Just make sure you bring a portable battery charger, this is sure to suck up a considerable amount of battery life over long periods.
Those of you already with an Xperia Z2 in your possession can get started right now but first, you’ll need to enable the “Live events” setting in your YouTube settings here. While you can find the Live on YouTube app on Google Play, those that prefer to sideload (perhaps you’re running an Xperia Z2 ROM with another device) can find a direct download to the apk here.
