Super Chat and Super Stickers are two unique features on YouTube that allow content creators to monetize their live streams and interact with their fans in exciting new ways. With new updates, our Live Now app can now show these two features when you’re live streaming on Youtube. In this article, we will dive deeper into what Super Chat and Super Stickers are, how they work, and the eligibility and availability requirements for using these features on your YouTube channel.
What is Super Chat?
Super Chat is a feature available on live-streaming on YouTube where viewers can pay to have their messages highlighted and pinned at the top of the chat window for up to five hours. This feature offers an opportunity for creators to monetize their content while enhancing engagement with their viewers.
What are Super Stickers?
Super Stickers, on the other hand, are quite like normal stickers that viewers can purchase during streams to show support or express themselves. However, these stickers appear super-sized on screen next to the viewer’s avatar and their size, animation, and placement depends on the amount spent.
With Super Chat & Super Stickers, viewers can purchase messages or stickers during live streams, which will be highlighted in the chat window for everyone to see. This feature acts as an instant donation box where viewers can support the channel and show appreciation for the content.

Additionally, you need to have an AdSense account linked to your channel to receive payments from viewers.
