YouTube's updating a crucial service to better compete with Facebook and Amazon

YouTube's updating a crucial service to better compete with Facebook and Amazon”

YouTube's new ultra-low-latency live streaming cuts broadcast delays to as little as two seconds. YouTube now offers ultra-low latency with Live Streams, meaning that you can stream video with just a couple seconds of latency between the moment and the stream.

Live streaming isn't always as "live" as you'd think.

In a blog post published today, YouTube's Live product lead, Kurt Wilms, outlined new features the team was implementing specifically for those who want to stream games.

So while the new ultra-low latency setting may not be appropriate for every live-streaming situation, YouTube says it will be particularly useful for creators who have lot of back and forth with their viewers.

YouTube also launched new chat moderation tools to keep the conversation during live streams civilized.

After all, the delay on Twitch is usually around 10-20 seconds, and those delays can sometimes cause headaches when streamers are asking their viewers for advice or calling for audience participation. When enabled, chat messages identified by YouTube's algorithms will be held from posting on your streams right away.

Inline moderation allows you to pause the chat feed so you, or a moderator, can moderate the feed. Then you can simply hover over a message to approve or delete it. It's a step toward real-time interaction with folks watching your live video.

With the latest update, YouTube is also focusing on making moderating chats more efficient.

On top of that, you can easily assign a chat moderator to be in charge of flagging, removing or hiding messages. If you are using an iOS device such as iPhone or iPad, you will be able to live stream apps directly from iOS device to YouTube Live. Onscreen streaming was previously available for select app games on YouTube Gaming, according to YouTube, but now users will be able to use their phone's microphone and front-facing camera to add video and audio commentary to these streams.

Apart from this, the company has also pushed a new feature specially for iOS devices.
