YouTube Live gets automatic English captions, live chat replays, and more

Auto Captions

Improving the live streaming feature of YouTube was a tactful weapon for Google and aimed at giving a hard-hitting answer to its rivalries such as Periscope of Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. While YouTube isn't making any big claims about the level of accuracy streamers can expect, it says its live automatic speech recognition (LASR) technology will produce error rates "approaching industry standards".

Last but not the least, creators can now add a location tag to their mobile live stream and video uploads to share their favorite spots with their viewers.

YouTube today declared a few new highlights meant to enhance the live spilling knowledge for the two makers and watchers. Yes, this feature has been around since 2009, but now onwards, the live videos will too generate captions automatically in English language.

YouTube is improving its livestreaming service, YouTube Live, with an update this month. Hence, YouTube has introduced Chat Replay, which will make those comments in the conversation available even after the Live stream is over. Live Chat Replay Now you can replay...

Viewers can then discover videos that have been filmed in that same location by clicking on the tag. They can also connect to several other smart devices and get engaged with the real-time world with lights, a pet feeder, and confetti canons.

Finally, you may recall that YouTube launched Super Chats a year ago, enabling YouTubers' fans to pay to have one of their comments highlighted in a live chat - basically, it's all about ensuring your words are seen above all the other chatter.

So far, Super Chat has only been available on Android devices and the desktop, but from today support is being added for iOS devices.
