Live captions in Hangouts Meet, Support for live captions on Hangouts Meet was announced for the web and Android earlier this year. We’re now bringing that same captions support to the Meet iOS app.
Please note, when you turn on captions, they will only be visible on that particular device. In order for other participants in the meeting to see captions, they’ll have to turn it on for their devices as well.
Currently, live captions are only available in English. Additionally, captions will not appear in a recording of a meeting. Check out the Help Center to learn more about how to use captions in a video meeting.
