The Facebook Live is one of the most exciting features of the Facebook, that is helping people to go live and connect with others. The Facebook Live is not suitable for the people, who are deaf and cannot hear anything. To help deaf or hearing impaired people the Facebook is going to launch the Live Captions features. Those who are not able to hear anything from the Live stream can enable this option to see the Captions. You can automatically start seeing the subtitles if the option is turned ON.
The Facebook has already added the option to add captions to the non-live videos, which is available to the Brand’s Facebook pages and for the publishers. Now, the subtitles are available to the live videos. As we cannot add the captions to the live videos, Facebook’s Speech Recognition software will automatically identify the words and show it on display along with the video. Along with the announcement of the Captions for Live videos, the Facebook announced the Collaborative Live stream options. With this option, you can collaborate with one of your friends to go Live on Facebook together. The collaboration feature is an exciting addition to the Facebook’s Live streaming. Now, two or more people can go live together, instead of one person going live and other joining as the viewers.
Also, the Facebook has announced that they’ll bring the Live Chat option for the streamers to start a direct personal conversation with any of the viewers instead of talking in the comments sections. This will help both the streamers and viewers to discuss things while maintaining the privacy in the Live Stream. All the announcements made by Facebook are highly appreciated by the Facebook users as these features are helpful to connect with more people easily.
