What is Live Caption?

Live Caption is one of the most important features of Android 10, which can automatically transcribe any videos into subtitles in real time with the help of AI technology. Moreover, the Live Caption subtitles are generated by Google’s on-device machine learning, so it can still work under offline environment. This is a very practical feature that can be used in many occasions, especially for deaf or hard of hearing people, and we can watch videos silently without disturbing others.
