Seems like Videos are the thing of the future, every platform is bringing Live Steaming feature for the users to express themselves on Social Media.

YouTube has been lowering the eligibility bar for the Mobile Live Streaming Feature, Twitter has Periscope, Facebook and Instagram have already got the Live Feature for everyone.

Live Streaming is coming to WhatsApp as well.

Now it may seem why is there a need of the Live feature on a Messaging App like WhatsApp, you can simply make Video calls to anyone on WhatsApp and talk one on one.

But then there was no need of WhatsApp Status Messages also that was rolled out in Earlier this year, which also got a lot of criticism from its users.

But I see a lot of people using the WhatsApp Status, aka WhatsApp Stories.

Also, WhatsApp added the functionality of streaming the videos sent by your WhatsApp Contacts.

Moreover, WeChat, a similar Instant Messaging app from China, has already got the Live video streaming feature.

And WhatsApp being shameful about copying best things from its competitors, it does not take any guessing that the Live Video Streaming feature is on the Do-To list of WhatsApp Engineers.

All these features already existed in other products owned by Facebook and were later introduced to WhatsApp, making it more certain the Live Streaming Feature is also coming pretty soon to WhatsApp.
