  • Google is working on several features for Live Caption, which is shipped as part of the Android System Intelligence app.
  • These upcoming features include options around emojis, emotional intensity, and word duration, and showing these in the transcript.

Google introduced Live Caption as a feature back in Google I/O 2019. This underrated accessibility feature can create captions of any speech coming out of your device. I’ve frequently used it in situations where I couldn’t audibly listen to my phone audio but still needed to figure out what was being spoken. Google is working on adding new improvements to Live Caption that would make it even more useful.
