Microsoft Edge Will Translate YouTube Videos In Real-Time

In a recent development, Microsoft hosted its annual developer conference, Build 2024. The company introduced several new features and announcements across its product line. The most notable is a real-time video translation feature for Microsoft Edge powered by AI. It will allow users to experience live translations of spoken content on platforms such as YouTube, LinkedIn, and Coursera, providing dubbing and subtitles.

It is pertinent to mention that the new translation feature will initially support translations from Spanish to English and from English to German, Hindi, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. However, the feature is anticipated to support additional languages and websites soon. Microsoft Edge’s new feature is aimed at making video content more accessible to a broader audience. It will undoubtedly be a very helpful feature for those who are deaf or hard of hearing, as it will offer live subtitles.

Microsoft Edge Gets Real-Time Translation Feature

In addition to YouTube and educational platforms like Coursera, Microsoft Edge will reportedly extend this real-time translation capability to videos on major news websites such as Reuters, CNBC, and Bloomberg. Users will be able to access a wide range of content, regardless of the original language.

The new real-time translation feature is part of a broader suite of AI enhancements incorporated into Edge through Microsoft’s Copilot initiative. Edge users already boast AI features like video summarization, which depends on available transcripts to create text summaries of YouTube videos. Now, the new translation feature will help in translating audio content in real time without needing pre-existing transcripts.

Apart from AI translation, Microsoft also introduced a lot of things for Windows and AI during the Build 2024 keynote. Some of the most prominent capabilities for Copilot AI agents include monitoring emails, automating workflows, aiding in employee onboarding, and performing data entry. These AI agents will help businesses by taking over redundant tasks rather than replacing jobs. Soon you will enjoy these features in Copilot Studio.

Microsoft also introduced Phi-3 Vision. It is a new compact multimodal AI model apt for reading text and analyzing images, optimized for smartphones. This model is part of the Phi-3 family, announced in April. Moreover, it is now available in preview. Phi-3 Vision’s design allows advanced image analysis on smartphones, improving the usability of AI for mobile users.
