Google has introduced a new feature called Live Caption that will allow users to caption any audio and video that they play on the web browser.
The feature were first spotted by XDA Developers and tested the feature on YouTube and Disney+ Hotstar, and it seemed to work perfectly.
The feature was initially available only on Pixel 4 devices but was later available in the other Pixel phones including the Pixel 3, Pixel 3a and non-Pixel phones, including the Galaxy S20 series, OnePlus 8 series and OnePlus Nord.
To use the feature, users must have to download Google Chrome 89 if you do not have it on your computer. If the users have it already, you will have to update it first.
You may need to restart the browser if you can’t see the Live Caption toggle on Chrome 89.
Google says that the Live Caption will work across social media sites, video platforms, podcasts and radio content and most web-based video or audio chat services.

Open Chrome Settings > click on the Advanced section > go to the Accessibility section > switch on Live Caption.
Once the feature is turned on, Chrome will download some speech recognition file.
The Live Caption feature in Chrome took some time to download speech recognition files when we played a Podcast.
At the bottom of a video, captions appear in a small pop-up window that is expandable to fit additional text. The feature will work even if you mute the audio on the video.
In streaming apps like YouTube, this will display the text of whatever is being said in the video at the bottom of the video like subtitle.
The Live Caption feature will works only on English now and supports for more languages will expect soon.
