Google today updated YouTube with several new features centered on live-streaming. First, replays of live streams will now include a replay of the accompanying chat. Viewers will be able to see the chat window update as it did during the initial broadcast. Second, YouTube live-streaming will offer real-time captions. Google says live automatic captions are a quick way for creators to expand the reach of their video. Google's technology for creating captions — limited to English for now — has an error rate and latency approaching industry standards. Google says the error rate and latency will improve over time. Last, YouTubers can add location tags to live video streams, as well as enable SuperChats via IFTTT. Google says these changes are rolling out to YouTube over the next few weeks.
