Streaming star Valkyrae has broken the news that YouTube will be testing out gifted channel memberships as more and more broadcasters migrate from Twitch.

What are gifted memberships?

Gifted memberships appear to work in a similar vein to gifted Twitch subscriptions.

Users can purchase a membership to a certain YouTube streamer’s channel and ‘gift’ it to another user — making for a unique gift for a friend’s birthday, as well as marking yet another way to support one’s favorite content creators.

If Rae’s announcement is any indication, YouTube users are in for a wild ride as the platform continues to pump out new features as it further breaks into the streaming sphere.
