At the company’s event on August 13, Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. Along with those two phones came Live Broadcast, a feature that would also be brought to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

This means you’ll have to have a YouTube account (through Google) set up and ready to go. The feature seeks to fight off rival apps such as Periscope, Meerkat, and a number of others.

Samsung is reportedly considering bringing back the microSD card slot for the Galaxy S7.
