Google updated its video calling app Meet with in-meeting live translated captions to help users to bridge language barriers, distances, and disabilities.

This feature can be useful for those who have hearing disabilities like partial or complete deafness. Such users usually depend on subtitles for movies and other video recordings.

Meanwhile, the new feature will be available for teachers and co-teachers who start Meet sessions through Google Classroom.

The users can also access third-party speech-to-text utility tools to watch and understand Meet recordings. However, the controls for recording captions will only be available to hosts of a particular call.

In this regard, the hosts and co-hosts need to be mindful of the needs of the meeting attendees while setting up the Meet session. The recordings are saved in their Google Drive as an MP4 file in a folder named "Meet Recordings."
