YouTube announced new additions and improvements for its caption and audio features on its platform.
One of these that is now rolling is the live auto-caption for any YouTube livestreams in English. This was initially only available to channels with over 1,000 subscribers but now has made the feature accessible to everyone.
YouTube also plans to include 13 supported automatic captioning languages for live auto-captions in the coming months.
Besides live auto-captions for English livestreams, updates will also include auto-translation for captions going on mobile, search caption transcripts on mobile, multi-audio tracks and descriptive audio feeds, and channel permission to add captions.
