Chrome now automatically translates audio and video

Share on

In the latest version of Chrome, you can choose to have your browser automatically translate audio and video during playback. The function is fast and precise and impressive in many ways. For now, Instant Text only works in English, but you can choose to turn the feature on even if you have Chrome in Norwegian.

Here's how to do it
In Chrome settings, click 'Advanced.' Then select availability and at the top, you will find 'Direct subtitles'. You can also customize the size and style of captions in apps and on websites that support the setting.

Google's Live Captions appeared in 2019 but has so far only been available on Pixel phones and Samsung phones. The feature uses machine learning to spontaneously text video and audio, making the internet much more accessible for the deaf and hard of hearing. It writes the website The Verge.

The subtitles appear at the bottom of the window when the function is turned on. Even if you have turned off the sound, and even if you have actually turned off the sound directly in a YouTube clip, the subtitles come up. In other words, you can now 'read' news in a new way.

The subtitles work on various websites and even when playing music on Soundcloud, although it is not always as precise. We have also tested the function with video on Twitter and it works quite well.

Try for yourself.
