The craze of PUBG-M has taken over the Asian gaming community in the past twelve months.

How to Stream Mobile Games on Streaming Portals?

Twitch is a popular platform for gaming, and it has millions of viewer’s daily watching gameplays. The community presented gamers from all around the world and made fame with fortune over the years. In this case, we are going to take YouTube as a streaming platform.

Step 1: Download the YouTube Gaming app from Google Play Store. Tap to fire up the application from the menu and tap on the stream icon located at the top menu to make the first step.

Step 2: A quick guide to terms and conditions of the “mobile capture feature” and tap on next to proceed.

Step 3: You have two options available in the next page 1) the first one leads to streaming, and 2) the second one offers recording capabilities. Gamers have the option to select the video format as well from 480p to 720p and OnePlus supports 1080p.

Step 4: YouTube Gaming app lists down the number of installed apps and tap to select the game from the menu.

Step 5: You can sign in to the YouTube account and preset the details of the live stream. Just in case, you can add a new title and description within the application.

Step 6: The next page leads the users to “Start now.”

Step 7: The live stream does not begin immediately, and YouTube gaming app allows the users to access Front camera, Microphone recording, Go Live button and settings.

Step 8: Tap on the Live Steam button to display your gaming skills to the entire world.

Many consider streaming apps are blessing, and it does add greater value to the gamers. However, it does have a fair share of CONS that no one speaks about it. The most underrated reviews presented by the top-notch sites avoid listing CONS involving mobile gaming.

CONS of OnePlus 6T Streaming Capabilities

Every smartphone has a fair share of downsides, and nothing is perfect down the line. The CONS does add greater impact on all Android and iOS smartphones, so do not consider it as you are alone and suffering wolf on the mountain.

1. Streamers cannot add a custom thumbnail, and I have tested it myself during my (I’m a PC Streamer) gameplay that thumbnails have a greater impact in audience retention.

2. No customization capabilities such as improvising the Title or Description during the gameplay.

3. Gamers cannot mute microphone and speaker separately, and if streamers have chosen to mute it, then they have to give up on the entire audio output.

4. Again, I have to point out; YouTube Gaming app does not allow the users to add extra layouts or elements such as donation alerts, new subscriber alerts, frames and more.

5. Gamers have to suffer from video output quality regardless of Higher Bitrate from 3000 MB Bitrate per second to 6500 MB Bitrate per second.

Several PUBG-M gamers playing on a smartphone suffer from video quality loss.


Manufacturers are introducing eccentric gaming smartphones in late 2018, but they are not focusing on adding tremendous value to the streamers. Lack of support to the streamers does impact the overall viewer’s experience, and no one can deny it.
