Going live on YouTube just got easier

This is good news for creators as well as viewers, as the essence of the video being "live" isn't lost. "Together, we've experienced the biggest music, sports, science, culture and gaming events unfold live on YouTube".

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


The live automatic captions will provide creators a quick way to make live streams accessible to more people.

A year after its launch, YouTube TV is adding more channels, and extending its service to 20 more United States markets. According to YouTube, live chat is a "key" means for forming connections between creators and viewers, and for that reason the company has started to roll out a new chat replay feature for reading chats after the livestream ends. Live broadcasting is now available to virtually anyone with a smartphone and YouTube has just added some notable updates. 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. Basically, YouTube has applied its live automatic speed recognition (LASR) technology, which is in the process of approaching industry standards with respect to error rates and latency. This feature will be rolling out in the coming weeks. Chat replays will show up alongside a video, exactly as it would have appeared live. This way, users will be able to explore other videos from the same location by simply clicking on the location tag or by searching for a specific location on YouTube.


The Super Chat include itself is right now accessible on Android and work area, and is propelling on iOS today.

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