YouTube has announced that it is rolling out Super Stickers to eligible content creators in 60 countries. Customers will be able to purchase different stickers to use during live streams and Premieres. The firm hopes that Super Stickers will build on Super Chat, which lets fans purchase messages that stand out within live chat and Premieres, ultimately boosting revenues for creators.
In order to use Super Stickers, you must meet the criteria, if you already have Super Chat on your channel then you’ll be eligible for Super Stickers too. According to YouTube, Super Stickers can be enabled at the “click of a button” and are already enabled if you’ve previously switched on Super Chat. End users can easily send stickers by hitting the “Show your support” button next to the emoji button in live chats. From there, you can choose to send a Super Sticker. You can pick from eight packs and each family of stickers has variations at different price points.
In order to make the stickers more inclusive, YouTube will make those with text available in several languages including English, French, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese. Over time, the company also plans to add additional sticker packs to make the feature more expressive for users.
It’ll be interesting to hear about how successful Super Stickers become. YouTube said in its announcement that Super Chats have already become a hit with more than 100,000 channels using the feature with the more popular streamers earning more than $400 per minute.
