1. "YouTube Live" is the official name of the product (used both in the HC, and in media reports).
  2. "YouTube Streaming" has a bit of ambiguity as to whether the questioner is talking about streaming in the live sense, or about streaming in the netflix sense.
  3. currently has 4 questions, all of which also contain the tag. Given this volume, it may not be worth keeping, but then, I'm coming from a 10k questions per month environment, so my meter may be way off for this community.

  1. seems reason enough to me :)

Renaming has been known to cause massive issues (on another SE site) so for just four Qs I suggest the mechanism, if to be renamed, be to edit in the new and edit out the old (ie 'manual').

This Q reached 40 views with no sign of disagreement and some feint signs of agreement so I have swapped the tags out. has disappeared and a Usage guide for has been approved, presently:

This tag should be used to differentiate questions about the streaming service from other questions on this site. Use when the topic is YouTube Live, a service that provides live streams such as of gaming, music, sports and news. This tag may be used in conjunction with tag [youtube].

    I agree, for four questions, it's not a big deal to just swap the tag out.

    Not a bad idea. I think there's enough evidence for this one, though.

  • "Google" is not a product. YouTube is an actual product upon which YouTube Live lives. I understand what you are saying, but I think you are overthinking this.

  • Please understand, I'm not handing down anything. :) I'm just expressing my opinion. It's easy to say "Well, SE wants this", when, in reality, many of these "wants" are de facto standards more than anything.
