Google has introduced a new ‘caption’ feature for video and voice call messages on Google Duo. However, remember that this feature works only on recorded video and voice messages and not on live video calls. Whenever you play someone’s video or voice message, you will see the caption at the bottom of the screen and just above the ‘Call’ button. The purpose of this feature is that you can easily get the messages of your loved ones even in a noisy place. It becomes difficult to hear the voice of voice messages and recorded videos in the noise, In such a situation, you can know what message has been sent in the video and voice message by reading the caption.
Google announced this new feature through its Twitter handle. Not only this, the company has also shared a demo video in its post to explain to the users how the caption feature works.
A Google spokesperson confirmed to Android Police that the feature will be available on both Android and iOS versions of Google Duo.
However, it is also important to mention that this feature is different from the Live Captions feature that Google has rolled out in its Pixel phones. Transcription of every word spoken in this feature appears on the screen.
In earlier reports, it was said that the Google Chrome browser will soon support the Live Caption feature. Let us tell you, during the coronavirus epidemic, a growing userbase has been seen on the video calling platform, in such a way, the best features are being introduced continuously for the users. As everyone knows the group video calling feature of Google Duo started with only 4 members, but due to the increasing need, its number was first increased to 8 and then to 12 in March. However, now 32 people can simultaneously avail the group video calling facility through Google Duo.
