Google Meet Can Now Generate Real-time Captions In Hindi, Gujarati And Other Local Languages

Google’s video calling platform, Google Meet, is enhancing its user experience for the Indian audience. Google announced an expansion in language support for captions on Google Meet, now accommodating Hindi, Gujarati, and Marathi, among other regional languages.

What Happened? Real-time captions on Google Meet emerge as participants speak during online meetings, aiding understanding, particularly when connections are patchy or for those who may have hearing impediments.

Over the next few weeks, users in India are likely to spot the option in their Google Meet settings, provided you’re a Google Workspace user.

More in store: Google’s other Workspace tools are also seeing improvements. Google Chat aims to keep your chats error-free by auto-correcting misspelt words, mimicking the convenience observed in Gmail and Google Docs.
