Amazing: Live Translated Captions Are Now Available On Google Meet 2022

Google Meet’s most useful feature is its automatic captions but it’s been limited to translating only English before now.

It was announced by Google last year that they are working on live translated captions and after months of testing, it’s been rolled out to eligible Google Workspace users.

This feature is limited to translating English to these four languages: Portuguese, French, Spanish and German. The translated captions can be accessed both on mobile devices and on web but the organizers will need to have an eligible account.

Having live translated captions is useful for those who aren’t fluent in English. The current limitation, apart from the translations being for only the four aforementioned languages, is that only spoken English can be translated.

Though the availability of this may be expanded eventually but for now, this is what we get. This feature will be useful in education settings as teachers will be able to connect with students from different backgrounds.
