YouTube Adds \'Super Chat\' To Live Streaming, Auto Generated Caption On Its Way

YouTube, the video sharing platform announces a new set of features for its live streaming option. The company is adding few supports to its live streaming service for the users to uplift the viewer’s experience. According to the announcement, the  streaming will be getting an automated English caption support for the streamers.

With the help of available automated English caption, the streamers can still add captions to their video in the absence of professionally crafted captions. YouTube introduced this new feature in order to enlarge viewers’ reach on a live stream video. The company uses its machine-learning powered live automatic speech recognition (LASR) technology to provide the captions. However, the service isn't perfect with English captions, but it is still helpful for users in need. In addition, YouTube is also going to save the chat over the streaming video and will play for the users. This means you can play back the ended live video on YouTube synchronized with the chats posted during the live session.

Another update that the company announced for the live streamers using their phone to stream live videos. YouTube has added a geotag feature that streamers can use to tag their location on the live streaming videos. Clicking on the location tag will explore more live videos from that particular location.This will also allow the users to search for nearby live videos using the location based tags. In order to monetize the live streaming functionality, YouTube added one more option to it. Now, the creators are able to use a ‘Super Chat’ feature that allows users to pay to the creators for letting their comments appear more prominently.

YouTube launched the live streaming service back in September 2011 after carrying out few experiments, including a concert by U2 (2009) and a Q&A session with US President Barack Obama. Initially, YouTube limited the live-streaming feature to some of its partners, but in 2013 it announced to roll out the feature for every verified user with 1,000 subscribers and finally removed the eligibility limitation. Currently, the live streaming through mobile phones requires a user to have at least 100 subscribers.
