HTC Brings YouTube Livestreaming to their RE Camera

The HTC RE, the periscope-like action cam, is getting a major upgrade in functionality—starting tomorrow, Android users will be able to livestream video from the RE to their YouTube channel.

The Android version of the app will be getting an update including the new livestreaming functionality, which should go live on Google Play tomorrow. Using the RE app, you’ll be able to sign into your YouTube account and activate livestreaming, so the process sounds fairly straightforward. For iOS device owners, the livestreaming update is expected to be ready sometime before the end of Q1.

Livestreaming is a pretty key feature for any sort of portable or mountable action cam, so this is a step in the right direction if HTC wants to compete with GoPro and Sony.
