YouTube rolls new & # 39; superstickers & # 39; from which can be purchased and used in chats to help makers.
The videostreamer announced Tuesday that it will roll out paid stickers that can be used in the live chat feature of YouTube and contain a mix of cartoon foxes, lemons, hippos and more.
Stickers can be purchased for anywhere between 99 cents and $ 50 and the money helps support the maker of his choice.
Stickers vary from cartoon foxes to hippos and can be used in the live chat function of YouTube after purchase
The stickers build on a super chat function that allows users to put a message in a live chat at the top of a feed
YouTube is introducing eight separate sticker packages that will be available in different languages, including English, French, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese.
According to YouTube, the stickers are introduced after the success of a previous feature called superchats that allows users to purchase a message that stands out in the chat of a stream.
Like superchats, the stickers are used as a tool to help creators get extra money from their pages outside the traditional model of sharing in advertising revenue.
YouTube says more than 100,000 channels use Super Chats, with some streams earning more than $ 400 per minute.
The move will support similar efforts from YouTube that were rolled out earlier this year, allowing creators to open virtual stores on their page for selling merchandise such as clothing and more.

It has also introduced new membership features and YouTube Premieres that allow users to view a newly uploaded video in the same way as when watching a movie scoop.
Although the feature is likely to be welcomed by makers, the platform has captured the rage of its members last year.
