How to use the Live Caption feature on Pixel phones
Google introduced Live Caption for the first time in 2019 with the launch of the Pixel 4 phones, a feature that can annotate any audio that comes out of your phone, whether it's an audio clip, a video, a phone call, or a voice message. This feature relies on artificial intelligence and can automatically recognize speech and transcribe it into text.
What devices support the Live Caption feature?
This feature is exclusive to Pixel phones and works on the Pixel 2 or any newer model, but it has started to be added to other non-Google devices, such as some newer Samsung and OnePlus phones.
In the Pixel 6 series and newer devices, as well as some other modern Android phones, the Live Caption feature supports several languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. However, for older Pixel models, this feature only supports the English language.
Furthermore, the Pixel 6 phone and newer phones have the option of responding using text via Live Caption, where you can type a response while on a call and your phone will read your response to the person you are speaking with.
