YouTube adds auto-translation and location tags to livestreams

  • YouTube Live now supports IFTTT, geotagging, and more

It will allow you to follow the conversation (comments) alongside the video, exactly as it appeared during the live stream. 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 just introduced new features to enhance live streamed videos.

CL: Zinedine Zidane says Neymar injury brings no satisfaction
The French club took the lead in the Bernabeu last week but a Ronaldo double and deflected Marcelo strike saw them lose 3-1 . Real coach Zinedine Zidane is taking no pleasure from the news of Neymar's injury.

Automatic captions is the most impressive of the three in theory, but since it relies on machine learning it'll be a while before it's perfected.

Kurt Wilms, YouTube's live video product lead, said the Google-owned site is offering new tools to improve on the experience for creators and users.

Nokia 3 Android 8.0 update going into beta
In the camera department, the company has finally made a decision to include a setup of dual cameras, each measuring 12 megapixel. These devices will all run a very barebones Android OS, meaning no amounts of bloatware should come preloaded on the device.

Google announced a smattering of updates to YouTube Live today, the biggest among them being automatically-generated English captions for live videos. Users will be able click the location tag to search for other videos shot in the same place or search another location to see videos from that spot.

According to YouTube, there might be some glitches in the captions added but that's ok at an initial stage as the "error rates and latency are close to the industry standards". Look for this feature to debut in the coming weeks. What adds something extra includes automatic captions. There's also going to be a function where users can filter search results by location to find videos that have been tagged from a particular region. 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.

Bruins acquire Rick Nash in trade with Rangers
