If you've ever watched a reality TV show and thought "My life is more interesting than that...," you have a chance to prove it. No studio, no crew, no setup: All it takes is you and your Galaxy S6 edge+. Open the camera app, click the Live Broadcast button, and then share the link with your friends and family. Your phone will broadcast live in HD through YouTube Live, so anyone with access to YouTube can be right there in the live action with you. Here are five things you’ll want to capture and share in real time.

1. A Vacation of a Lifetime

Everyone has a dream vacation. Whatever yours is—from cycling the Great Wall to geeking out with fellow trekkies in Vulcan—it's worth sharing. Even the best vacation photos can't compare with seeing it live, in real time.

2. Family Reunion 2.0

It's a busy world, and getting the whole family together on any given occasion can be challenging. At the next holiday dinner or family anniversary, send a link to everyone who can't make it. Following along in HD is the next-best thing to being there.

3. The Meeting

Life isn't all fun and games, of course. When you need to call an urgent meeting, for business or family reasons, Live Broadcast minimizes the disruption to everyone's schedule. Get as many people in the room as you can conveniently manage, and send a link to everyone else.

4. Life’s Special Moments

Every life contains a string of memorable moments. That moment when your kayak was suddenly surrounded by a pod of whales; the day you said your "I dos;" the baby's first tottering steps—any life-changing moment—can be shared in the time it takes to text the link.

5. "You Have to See This!"

It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, a moving HD picture is worth a lot more. Instead of sharing interesting things you've seen on social media, now you can share real life. Whether it's an unbelievable performer or the dress your BFF never knew she needed, it takes just a moment.
