YouTube Updates Live Streaming Features

YouTube Live now supports IFTTT, geotagging, and more

In addition, YouTube has made livestreams more accessible for viewers who have hearing issues by introducing automatic captions to Live videos.

With all these features, YouTube wants to increase the interaction between the creators and the community. The chat replays will be displayed alongside the video, just like it appeared live.

YouTube makers would now be able to add an area tag to their portable live streams and video transfers, beginning today.

Likewise new is the choice to play back a live talk when a video wraps, which will give you the sentiment watching a live stream, regardless of whether the stream has finished.

"This will be rolled out in the coming weeks, and will continue to improve accuracy and latency of automatic captions", the statement added. YouTube will soon support English automatic captions for live streams, creating a cheap and easy way to make broadcasts more accessible. First, the company has announced that it's bringing automatic English captions to live streams whenever professionally provided captions aren't available.

Finally, YouTube is also adding a location tag for creators to add to their live streams and video uploads. The location tags can also be used to search for other videos with the same location tag. This feature is now unavailable, but YouTube has said that it will roll it out in the coming weeks. There's also going to be a function where users can filter search results by location to find videos that have been tagged from a particular region.

Next feature that will be airing on YouTube is Super Chat feature allows users to see their chats emphasized in a chat stream.

Over 600 internet-connected services and devices (like lights, pet feeders and confetti cannons!) can be connected to Super Chat.
