YouTube Live now supports IFTTT, geotagging, and more

Now, people watching a live stream after it concludes will see a replay of the chat scrolling on the right side of the video. The list includes automatic captions, chat replays and live broadcasts. Streamers can now add automatic live closed captions, and can tag their videos with a location, which in turn lets viewers see other live streams happening in the same area. YouTube has auto-captioned more than a billion videos and now, they're turning their attention to live streams.

When professionally provided captions aren't available, our new live automatic captions provide creators a quick and low-priced way to make live streams accessible to more people. "With our live automatic speech recognition (LASR) technology, you'll get captions with error rates and latency approaching industry standards". 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. This feature is now unavailable, but YouTube has said that it will roll it out in the coming weeks.

In the notice YouTube also says that the authors of the broadcasts can bind a function to Super Chats to the platform IFTTT (If This, Then That). It is reported that Automatic live stream captions will be release in the coming weeks. They can also filter video search results to show only videos created in a certain location.
