It seems Google is bringing the LiveCaption feature to its video calling app, Duo. A recent leak of the setting age of the app suggests that the feature is under development.
As of now, Google Duo can do many things. This includes sending Video and Audio messages to each other, including real-time recording filters. However, getting Live Caption for audio messages or video messages is pretty handy stuff.
Twitter user Jane Manchun Wong, who is pretty famous for reverse-engineering the apps, has found this feature.
As of now, only the Pixel devices have a universal Live Caption. However, bringing this feature to the app itself means a pretty nice feature is on its way for most users. It means a lot for those who cannot get Android 10 or a Pixel but still uses Google Duo.
In the settings, the app has a toggle to turn on this feature. With privacy kept in mind, Google has specifically mentioned that they will not store the live transcript or the audio file at all. Instead, they will just transcribe the audio and let you have it completely.
It may also be possible, that you might need an internet connection for the service to work.
Although the feature is in its initial stage, it may be possible that it may take another 6 months for a wide rollout.
