YouTube’s Super Chat is coming to a whole bunch of new countries for the first time to make live streams even more interactive.
YouTube’s Super Chat was introduced in 2017 to give creators new ways to earn during live streams. The feature allows viewers to tip the streamer as they’re watching and in return their comments will feature more prominently with a colour or will be pinned for a period of time in the chat.
Super Chat comments cost as little as $1 and as much as $500 and can offer a unique way for fans and creators to interact. Users can spend a maximum of $500 a day and $2,000 a week on Super Chat comments. With YouTube Premium users get $2 of Super Chat every month.
It was first launched fairly widely to 40 countries and 2 years later 19 more countries are now being added as part of their first expansion for the feature.
The new countries with YouTube Super Chat are:
Belarus, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Luxembourg, Malta, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Romania, South Africa, and Uruguay.
