Google is bringing back the option to live stream gaming content directly from a smartphone, which was available since 2015 via the YouTube Gaming app. However, because the latter was killed off a few months ago, the option to live stream from a smartphone disappeared since it wasn't included in the basic YouTube app.

But that's not an issue any longer, as Google has already implemented the ability to live stream a phone's screen in YouTube 14.31.50 for Android, XDA Developers reports. The app's support website has already been updated to reflect the new changes, so if you want to live stream directly from your phone, here is what you have to do:

Select the capture button
Select GO LIVE.
At the top right of the screen, tap the phone icon to stream your phone’s screen.
Create a title, then select a privacy setting and game title.
Optional: select More options.
Add a description
Schedule for later
Tap Advanced settings for:
Enable or disable live chat
Enable or disable age restriction for your stream
Indicate whether your stream contains paid promotion and add a paid promotion disclosure
Enable or disable monetization
Select Next to set your thumbnail and screen orientation.
The default thumbnail is based on the game title you chose. Customize the thumbnail by tapping the edit button on the top right of the thumbnail.
Select Landscape or Portrait orientation for your recording. Once you start recording, you won’t be able to change the orientation.
Tap Next to finish setup.
A toolbar will show up at the top of your screen, allowing you to control the stream.
Hit GO LIVE button to start. A 3 second countdown animation will appear before your stream starts.
“You are live” will stick for 3s before fading off screen.

Although you'll be able to live stream your mobile device screen directly from the YouTube app without any additional hardware, you need to be eligible for mobile livestreaming (verified channel) and own a smartphone that runs Android version 6.0 or later.
