Live Caption is one of two accessibility features introduced for the Pixel smartphone when Google released Android 10.
In short, it transcribes videos in real time to display subtitles, which is great for all apps. In addition to the hearing impaired, ordinary people can also use it in a noisy or very private environment.
Of course, people don’t just watch videos on mobile phones. To benefit more users watching online video through a PC browser, Google may soon introduce this feature to Chrome.
Chrome Unboxed discovered a source modification on Chromium, indicating that Google developers are working to introduce the feature to a browser (or at least the Chrome OS platform).
