YouTube Live is on the map — letting viewers to partner with creators via a list of new live updates. The updates include such options as geo-tagging live videos and using Super Chats to trigger internet-connected devices like pet feeders. YouTube launched a handful of new features for live-streaming, including automatic captioning, geo-tagging, and chat replay.
Adding an optional geo-tag before live-streaming from a smartphone allows YouTubers to share their location. Geo-tagged videos also open up another option for exploring the video platform since clicking on the location will navigate to a page with videos shared from the same location. The tool also introduces a new search filter allowing YouTubers to search for a specific video by location.
Another new feature brings the automatic captioning that’s been around since 2009 to live videos. YouTube says its live automatic speech recognition (LASR) brings that feature to live videos in real time. As far as the accuracy of software translating live speech, YouTube says that it’s “approaching industry standards” and that the accuracy will continue to improve. The feature rolls out over the next few weeks for videos in English.
Captioning on live videos was previously only possible when the creators provided the captions themselves, a process that involves expensive set-up. YouTube says that auto-captioning will bring the feature to more videos, inexpensively.
