Small Businesses Using YouTube Live Updates will Soon See New Features

YouTube has announced three updates to its live streaming service giving live broadcasters, including small business marketers, more options to engage with their audiences. The new features give content creators and their audiences more options, whether an event is live or after the fact. For content creators, who are classified as small businesses, the platform is used to monetize the content they generate. YouTube Live Updates Captions and Chat The first update uses an automatic speech recognition technology to provide automatic English captions to live streams. If your small business can’t afford a professional caption service, this is a great feature to make your streams more accessible, especially for people who are hearing impaired. The second update makes it possible for your audience to replay the chats you have on live streams. Users can then see exactly where the event is taking place if they decide they want to visit or know the location. Enabling Live Streaming If you want to stream a live event and you still haven’t used this feature on YouTube, you first have to enable your channel. You start by confirming your channel is verified and you have no live stream restrictions in the last 90 days. After the first event, your streams will go live instantly.
