The new features are meant to expand the audience of YouTube Live broadcasters, and keep viewers engaged with content after broadcasts have ended. Utilizing YouTube's live automatic speech recognition (LASR) technology, creators will be able to add captions with error rates and latency "approaching industry standards". The Google-owned company announced past year that it has passed 1 billion videos with automatic captions. 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. The company says that since 2009, YouTube has a billion more videos with automatically generated subtitles. This feature is now unavailable, but YouTube has said that it will roll it out in the coming weeks.
