Live Caption was detailed during this year’s Google I/O developer conference, and even though Android 10 has launched, the feature isn’t yet live for Pixel owners. Right now, it looks like the feature will launch as a Pixel 4 limited time exclusive, though, it’ll likely launch for additional Pixel devices down the road.
Thanks to XDA and Nextrift, we’re getting a look at Live Caption in action, which instantly translates audio on the device into readable captions on the phone’s display. This will be helpful if you want to watch a video and get info from it, but don’t have headphones and aren’t in a place where listening to a video is appropriate. It will also be helpful for those with hearing issues as well.
Inside the settings menu for Live Caption, users can choose languages, mask profanity, and also set Live Caption in volume control.
Here’s a look at the feature in action. Very cool.
Some of our best videos.
