The Super Chat feature for YouTube has been around for a couple of years, allowing you to send cash to your favorite live streamers. It has been available widely and is now rolling out to a further 19 countries.
That increase means that you can pay for Super Chat messages in 60 countries around the globe (via Android Police). Considering that we recently saw the YouTube Gaming site merge with the main YouTube site, this is likely a way to ensure consistency across nations globally.
From today, anyone in the following countries can send donations to their favorite channels or live streamer:
- Costa Rica
- Czech Republic
- Dominican Republic
- El Salvador
- South Africa
The spending limits are still set at $500 USD per day, or $2,000 USD per week on YouTube Super Chats and Super Stickers if you’re feeling particularly generous with your donations. Should you already be a YouTube Premium subscriber, you’ll also get up to $2 Super Chat credit as part of your subscription.
