YouTube adds exciting attributes including chat replays, automatic captions and much more

Live chat allows viewers to interact with creators during live broadcasts, but that isn't a new feature. Don't expect these captions to be 100 percent flawless with no lag, but YouTube's live automatic speech recognition technology offers "error rates and latency approaching industry standards".

The most interesting new feature is chat replay: When a user re-watches a live stream that has concluded, they can also re-experience the live chat that happened alongside it.

A year after its launch, YouTube TV is adding more channels, and extending its service to 20 more USA markets. Clicking or tapping on that location tag will show you other videos from that area, and you can also filter search based on location to see only videos recorded nearby. Wilms added that creators will get captions with error rates and latency approaching industry standards. First, live videos can now take advantage of automatic caption creation in English, something that's been available to on-demand videos since 2009. The feature will roll out in the coming weeks. Announced previous year, Super Chats have been available on desktop and Android for some time. The thought here is to better computerize the element that enables a Super Chat to trigger a genuine occasion, similar to lights, a pet feeder, or a confetti gun.
