(CTN NEWS) – On Wednesday, Google revealed that it had updated Google Meet to include support for subtitles on video recordings. When it was first released in January last year, Google Meet’s translated caption feature could only be used during live meetings.

Teachers and co-teachers can also turn on this capability for meetings organized through Google Classroom.
Customers of Google Workspace Essentials, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, the Teaching, and Learning Upgrade will be able to add captions to Google Meet) video recordings, according to Google.
On Wednesday, the functionality began to roll out to domains with Rapid Release, and on March 1, it will start to roll out to domains with Scheduled Release. By March 15, users should be able to access the service.
