Youtube to add new features for Live stream

YouTube Live now supports IFTTT, geotagging, and more Youtube Live update: chat replay, automatic captions, location tags

The new live automatic captions feature will enable creators to use a quick and low-priced way to make their live streams accessible to more people thanks to YouTube's live automatic speech recognition technology.

The Live streaming feature on YouTube has been around since quite a few years now.

YouTube has made some changes to its livestreaming and live chat services.

Automatic captions is the most impressive of the three in theory, but since it relies on machine learning it'll be a while before it's perfected. This allows content creators to better interact with fans by providing a live environment - not just pre-recorded and edited videos. In 2009, it added automatic captioning to the mix, merging its automatic speech recognition (ASR) smarts with YouTube's captioning technology to automate the process of creating subtitles in videos. Obviously there will be some error rates and latency but Google says they're "approaching industry standards". "Together, we've experienced the biggest music, sports, science, culture and gaming events unfold live on YouTube". Viewers can click on the location tag and find other videos from the same place, or simply search for a location on the search results page to find tagged videos. This feature will be rolled out widely in the coming weeks and the accuracy and latency will continue to be improved.

First off, Google's finally launching something that it announced nearly a year ago at Google I/O 2017 - IFTTT integration with Super Chat.

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