    Google is working on a competitor to Twitter's popular video streaming app, Periscope, and also the new Facebook Live that recently came out.

    Called YouTube Connect, the service would pretty much be like Periscope, according to sources at VentureBeat. The app will be available on Android and iOS. You will be able to log in with your Google or YouTube account and then stream the event, which will be visible in the app and also on your channel, if you have one. You can choose to save the stream after you're done so people can watch it later if they missed the live stream. There will also be chat and tagging features and you can also see what others are live streaming on your news feed.

    YouTube currently does have a live streaming feature but it would seem too daunting to some people, who would prefer the simplicity of something like Periscope or Facebook Live. The new YouTube Connect will attempt to appeal to the younger crowd but with YouTube still part of the name, it remains to be seen if people will take to it. Besides, Google just isn't as cool as Twitter or even Facebook.
