Live captions are useful for video calls because they allow you to see what is being said as well as hear it. You can enable live captions in Google Meet, turn them off if necessary, and change the language.

  • On the Google Meet website, there are a few simple ways to enable live captions. Begin or join your meeting as usual.
  • Click the Captions button in the toolbar at the bottom to use your default language. The button turns blue, and the subtitles appear.
  • To enable captions while also selecting a language, click the three dots at the bottom of the screen and select “Captions.”
  • Select a language for the captions and then click “Apply.”
  • Captions can also be enabled in the Settings menu. Click the three dots, then select “Settings,” then “Captions.” Enable the Captions toggle at the top.
  • Captions will appear at the bottom of the screen as participants speak.
