YouTube's Live streaming functionality gets more accessible

Youtube Live update chat replay automatic captions location tags                   By Ida Torres

As more and more people get into live streaming their events, promotions, or even just their thoughts and stuff, we know that the brands will continue to add more features to engage both the content creators and the audience that consume these live videos. Youtube has come up with great new features including, Live chat Replay, auto-captions, location tagging and IFTTT integration with super chats. Live chat replays will show up alongside the video in the same manner as they as appeared live.

"Live chat plays a key role in creating connections between creators and their community".

YouTube today announced a trio of new features for its YouTube Live streaming service. While they might not be as accurate as professionally provided captions, they have the potential to make some live streams more accessible to hearing-impaired viewers. YouTube's using the same captioning system that's been in place since 2009, and it'll initially be available in English when it's launched in the coming weeks. What adds something extra includes automatic captions. You can also use the location filter on the search results page to find other videos from a specific spot. The thought here is to better computerize the element that enables a Super Chat to trigger a genuine occasion, similar to lights, a pet feeder, or a confetti gun.

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.

Super Chat is already available on desktop and Android devices, with support for iOS devices rolling out starting today.
