Does the YouTube Android app also have an option for live streaming?

By this, I mean to live stream for YouTube accounts which have been enabled for live streaming.

    Live content is accessable if you already have a link or have it in Youtube's history -playing it before with the same account on the computer-... Previously, on the left panel there was a "Live" option at the end of all the list along with the generic tabs "sports", "science", etc. etc. but it seems they just dumped it a while ago... Dunno why? XDDD

    Live streaming is not available within the mobile app as the devices most likely would not be able to handle such a high amount of internet bandwidth and processing power to record, transcode, and upload the video in real time. It may be available in the future, but I don't see the option happening any time soon. There are some apps or websites that can be accessed by mobile devices that can live stream, but the video tends to lag and stutter horribly, or the video has to be pre-recorded and uploaded. I would not suggest using a mobile device for live streaming unless it would be used as a webcam attached to a computer.
