According to YouTube, live chat is a "key" means for forming connections between creators and viewers, and for that reason the company has started to roll out a new chat replay feature for reading chats after the livestream ends.

"Live chat plays a key role in creating connections between creators and their community".

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). Wilms added that creators will get captions with error rates and latency approaching industry standards. Chat reply alongside the video will allow viewers to follow a conversation even after a stream is over. Live broadcasting is now available to virtually anyone with a smartphone and YouTube has just added some notable updates. The location tags are also available permanently on uploaded streams, which will make searching easier. As the name suggests, users can now add location tag to live streams and video uploads from their mobile. Yes, this feature has been around since 2009, but now onwards, the live videos will too generate captions automatically in English language. It is reported that Automatic live stream captions will be release in the coming weeks. Now you'll quickly be able to see other videos shot in the same location simply by clicking the tag. This gives viewers the chance to experience the live stream exactly as it originally appeared.

Next feature that will be airing on YouTube is Super Chat feature allows users to see their chats emphasized in a chat stream. 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.
