Google has started rolling out the live translated captions feature on Google Meet. This new feature essentially translates conversations from one language to another in real-time in Google Meet. The live translation feature will help users communicate better by translating a spoken language to captions in another language.
Google Workspace users can test the live caption features in beta. It will initially support meetings conducted in English that it can translate into Spanish, French, Portuguese, and German, reports Engadget.
Google says that Google Meet’s live translated captions feature helps in making video calls on its platform more ‘inclusive and collaborative by removing language proficiency barriers’. It also said that it will help educators to connect and interact with students better.
Google had first announced this feature at its annual developers’ conference – Google I/O last year. Later, it started testing it with a small group of users. Today the company announced that Google Meet’s new feature is out of beta testing and that it is available to all users on the web and on mobile devices.
The feature will be rolling out to Google Workspace Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and Teaching & Learning Upgrade customers. It will not be available to meetings organized by Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Enterprise Essentials, Education Fundamentals, Frontline, and Nonprofits, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers.
