Google is starting to roll out chat replay to YouTube, so you can follow the conversation even after a live stream is over.
Live chat replays will show up alongside the video, exactly as it appeared live, Google said.
Google is also now bringing English automatic captions to live streams.
When professionally provided captions aren't available, the new live automatic captions provide creators a quick way to make live streams accessible to more people. With Google's live automatic speech recognition (LASR) technology, you'll get captions with error rates and latency approaching industry standards. This is rolling out in the coming weeks.
In addition, creators can now add a location tag to their mobile live streams and video uploads and share all their favorite hot spots with viewers. You can explore other videos with the same location tag by simply clicking on it. You can also use the location filter on the search results page to find other videos from a specific spot.
Last year, Google introduced a way for Super Chats to trigger real life events. Now creators can set this up for their channels using IFTTT (If This, Then That). Over 600 internet-connected services and devices (like lights, pet feeders and confetti cannons!) can be connected to Super Chat. Super Chat is already available on desktop and Android devices, with support for iOS devices rolling out starting today.
