It means that on both Android and iOS, captions will be automatically generated when the video is on mute. for the users using Twitter on the web, captions will be made available upon clicking the “CC” button in the video player. Captions can be turned off from the same button.
These automatic captions will be available in 30 languages including English, Chinese, Hindi, Spanish, Japanese, and others. Right now there are no options to translate these languages but the company might launch it in the coming days.
Also, these captions will be available on the new uploads so it means they won’t be available on the previous videos.
Have you received this feature? If not, wait for another couple of days.
