  • Broadcasts will become even more powerful streaming platform

YouTube has announced several features to make live streams on its platform easier and more accessible.

Second, YouTube is now going to preserve and replay the chats that occurred during a live stream.

Last year YouTube introduced an attribute called "Super Chats", which enabled to pay to have their comments to appear above everyone else's to make sure that they got the attention of their favorite YouTuber while watching a livestream.

Starting today, creators can add location tags to their live streams. Don't expect these captions to be 100 percent ideal with no lag, but YouTube's live automatic speech recognition technology offers "error rates and latency approaching industry standards". The most remarkable increments incorporate the capacity to play back a live visit after the live stream closes, and the dispatch of live programmed inscriptions on recordings.

YouTube is usually associated with viewing the finished video, but many authors spend on it live broadcasts with Live. Google claims the accuracy and latency of generated captions are "approaching industry standards", for what that's worth. The video creators can now add a location tag to their mobile livestreams and video uploads and share all their favourite hot spots with viewers. The feature will roll out in the coming weeks. YouTube now wants to lets users relive that experience after the fact.

Live chat allows viewers to interact with creators during live broadcasts, but that isn't a new feature. Moreover, users can also click on these location tags to see videos that have been shot at that same place (reminds us of Instagram). Already available on desktop and Android devices, YouTube says it is rolling out support for Super Chat on iOS devices today.
