Twitter’s Closed Captions Feature Is Now Available On Android, IOS


If the video doesn’t already have subtitles, Twitter’s recently introduced closed captioning functionality won’t function.Additionally, it is distinct from the automatic captioning system.

Twitter has revealed that it will soon provide a new closed captions option available to all Android and iOS users.The recently introduced closed captioning buttons can be seen in the top right corner of any video that supports them.To enable or disable this function, users only need to hit the closed captions (CC) button located in the top right corner of the video in the app for Android or iOS.

It’s important to note that turning on or off captions for videos on Twitter has historically been a rather challenging process.Depending on a number of variables, such as whether you have this function turned on or off in the Twitter app’s Accessibility setting or whether you are watching the video with the sound on or off, you may be able to enable (or disable) it.The microblogging platform is making it simpler to enable or disable this feature in Twitter’s mobile app, just as it is in the case of its web-based platform, even though all the factors continue to have an impact on it.

It’s important to remember that Twitter began testing this functionality with a small group of iPhone users back in April of this year.The business is currently extending its reach to all iOS and Android users worldwide.

But there is one condition.If the video doesn’t already have subtitles, Twitter’s recently introduced closed captioning functionality won’t function.As a result, Twitter will only display subtitles if they are present in the video.You’re out of luck if they aren’t.Additionally, if the sound in your video is on, this functionality won’t function.

It’s interesting to note that Twitter introduced automatic subtitles for videos on its site last year.The new feature, which the business unveiled today, is not dependent on it.The button “will only show up on films with already-available captions, and is not tied to the automatic caption system”, the firm said in a statement to The Verge.
